Lettuce need to be sown at recommended times for best results. Heavy feeding and constant watering is required. Mulch, particularly in hot weather. High soil temperatures can cause seed dormancy, which may be broken by placing the seed in a refrigerator for 72 hours before sowing. Sow 1cm. deep, thinning or transplanting as suggested. Summer sowings of all types are risky in tropical areas.
Leaf Lettuce is ideal for early Spring and late Summer sowing. By picking a few leaves at a time, one sowing can give fresh leaves for 2 months. Far better than the Iceberg types which mature in a concentrated period.
