How to grow lettuce:

Seeds
Buy Organic Lettuce Seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

To be able to cut lettuce in early May sow seeds in a warm greenhouse in February.

Sow the seeds very thinly and just cover into a sprinkling of soil. Transplant the seedlings into trays and harden off in a cold frame.

Transplant to a sunny place in the garden at the end of March.

Make outdoor sowings in early March in a warm place.

Sow every fortnight until the end of August for a supply of lettuce until the beginning of winter.

Once grown the seedlings can either be transplanted to a prepared bed or simply turned out and left to mature.
