Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Slugs and aphids can be a problem for lettuce. To prevent slug damage keep the area around the lettuces clean and dry as possible, especially during the night. Use barriers such as crushed egg shells or copper wire. If the problem is known then you can use specific slug-killing nematodes–make sure you read the instructions on the package. MORE

Water regularly

Water the plants regularly to keep the ground constantly moist. If you are unsure, feel the soil with your hand. If it feels dry up to a fingernail deep then you can give the plant a watering. During winter the cold weather and rain should be enough to keep the plant watered most of the time. MORE

Full Sun

Plant in a position where the plants will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Rich, well-draining soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil. If you are planting into the ground then make sure you have added plenty of compost, especially if your soil is clay-heavy as the lettuce can rot due to poor drainage.MORE

Feed initially

Applying a nitrogen-rich feed such as chicken manure pellets when newly planted will help promote leafy growth resulting in bigger lettuce heads.MORE

Pruning not required

No pruning needed.MORE
