  • How to Grow Me

    Sowing Seed

    • Sow indoors using bean tin with holes punched in the base for drainage (or empty toilet/halved kitchen paper roll, a small yoghurt/plastic container or similar with holes punched in the bottom for drainage). 

    • Fill with approx. 6cm deep compost

    • Place 1 seed per container with no compost over them - seeds need light to germinate. 

    • Gently water. 

    • Seedlings are ready to plant out when they have 4 or 5 leaves (leave a few days after 4-5 leaves have grown before transplanting them). 

     

    Transplanting (moving to different location for optimum growing)

    • Ensure soil is moist before transferring

    • Best planted in average to rich (fertile) soil

    • Lettuce is ideal to plant anywhere that you have space between other plants, just as long as they are in partial sunshine approx. 20cm apart from other plants

    • Make approx. 5cm wide hole and plant the seedlings well down in the soil with the seed leaves just above the soil level, firm soil gently around plant.

    • Ensure soil around plant is kept weed free and ensure they are kept moist.

    • Water them a lot if weather is hot to prevent plant bolting (the plant sends up a flower stalk and becomes inedible). 

    • To encourage growth and deter pests, feed every 3 - 4 weeks with organic fertiliser (e.g. dried seaweed fertiliser, sachets available on sow.ie)

     

    Growing Time: 

    • Approx. 2 months

     

    Harvest:

    • Ensure lettuce is watered well the week before harvesting

    • Harvest as soon as lettuce leaves are fully formed - first removing outer leaves and then digging up entire plant. 

     

    Tip: Harvest early in the morning for optimum freshness
