Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Dry weather may cause heads of lettuce plants to bolt so watering is particularly critical during the 2 weeks before harvesting. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest lettuce when required by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife.
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting out into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Space plants 23cm (9") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects.
