Outdoors: sow thinly March-August where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has been watered. For cut and come again baby leaves, allow 15cm (6") between rows, or sow thinly, directly into 25cm (10") pots with drainage holes. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. No further thinning should be necessary. Keep moist. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply of leaves. Pick a few from each plant when approx. 10cm (4") high. They will regrow for up to 4 'cuts.' Harvest: April-October. For mature lettuces, allow 25cm (10") between rows and thin to 20cm (8") apart. Harvest whole plants from May.
If grown as cut and come again baby leaves, it may be necessary to feed the cut vegetation to encourage re-growth.
