Thin out gradually to 23cm apart A moist well drained fertile soil which has had plenty of compost dug in the previous autumn is best. In very hot weather it is best to water the soil before sowing and sow during the early afternoon. Grow in full sun
Lettuce seeds can sometimes be tricky to germinate if it's too hot or cold so don't sow too early in the year and if you are sowing during the summer months try to wait until late afternoon or early evening when the temperatures are a little cooler. Water lettuce regularly to stop it from bolting.
