Lettuce Salad Bowl
The first of the "cut and come again" types to arrive in our gardens. Salad Bowl forms bright green serrated leaves from large heads and gives a different texture to salads. This type of lettuce can be slow to bolt.
Lettuce is one of the most popular ingredients to go into most salads. So why not make yours more exciting by using your own fresh and crunchy salad leaves.

When to sow
When to Sow Salad Bowl Lettuce Seeds
End of February to July
Where to Sow
Sowings can be made underglass, sow seeds into pots or trays of seed sowing compost at a temperature of 15-20C and lightly cover seeds with sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Alternatively sow seeds from April thinly along rows 1.5cm (1/2in) deep and 30cm (12in) apart direct in the vegetable plot.
What to do next
Sowings made underglass can be pricked out into individual pots or module trays and grown on until ready to harden off and plant out into the vegetable plot 30cm (12in) apart between the plants and the rows. Seedlings sown direct outside can be thinned once large enough to handle to 30cm (12in) apart. Thinnings can also be transplanted into other rows, watered in well during hot dry spells.
10-12 weeks from sowing
When sowing as a 'cut and come again', sow every 2-3 weeks for a succession of fresh leaves all season.
