When to Sow Webbs Wonderful Seeds

End of February to June.
Germination difficulties may be experienced in July and August as lettuce seed will go into dormancy if sown in very hot weather.

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. As soon as the heart is firm, it's ready to be harvested. Pull the whole plant from the ground and then simply cut the roots and lower leaves off.

Maturity

10-12 weeks after sowing.

Handy Tip

Regular watering around the roots and not on the foliage is essential, especially 7-10 days before maturity.

Nutritional Values

A good source of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein and vitamin C as well as vitamin K.
