Planting lettuce is a regular job here in Colebrooke. Lettuce is our top seller and we bag up fifty plus bags each week, so we plant and harvest a lot!
Here is Colin transplanting from a large open tray. These large trays are great as you can get around one hundred plants to transplant without taking up much space germinating them in the green house.
Choose a day when the soil is moist, after some good rain, to plant. Not hard to find these days!
Separate each lettuce plant, making sure each one has a healthy root system and plant ten inches apart. Plant them to the bottom of the stem as they were in the tray.
Give them a good water in and a sprinkling of organic slug pellets, then in a few weeks your lettuce will be ready.
