Lettuce is a sun-loving cool weather crop and grows best in well-drained organic soil. Sow direct outdoors in successive crops every 2 weeks from April to August. Sow seeds 3mm (1/8in) deep in rows 45cm (18in) apart. Gradually thin seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart. Ensure an even supply of moisture throughout entire growth period. Harvest by pulling entire plant, or cut leaves off at least 2.5cm (1in) above base to allow for new leaf growth. Leaves become bitter once lettuce bolts.
