OUR TIPS
When sowing seeds directly into soil, go for 10 seeds per hole. Keep in mind that lettuce won't germinate in very warm soil so don't try mid summer sowing outdoors. Sow every 3 weeks to have a continious harvest.
When the crown of a lettuce becomes longer, it is about to bolt to produce seed. It's gone beyond it's prime and you can yank it out and replant a new lettuce plant.

BRINGS TO YOUR GARDEN
Makes great companion plants.
Grows greens throughout the summer.

HARVESTING
Harvest lettuce at anytime after their true leaves form. For the best quality leaves, pick them earlier than late as lettuce if allowed to grow too long can be bitter and tough.

MAKES FOR GREAT..
SALAD. Did you think we were going to say something else?

HEALTH BENEFITS
A good dose of fibre, vitamin A + K and foliate to the diet. Lettuce helps your body make use of carbohydrates and fats as well as supporting your kidneys helping your muscles to contract.
