Lettuce thrives well in all types of garden soil. Sow flat and thin every 2-3 weeks in order to harvest leaves year round. Transplant once lettuce is about 5 cm high. Avoid planting too deep. If planted early in the season, cover the plants with a growing foil in order to achieve an early harvest. Lettuce thrives particularly well in moderate temperatures and abundant light. Frequent watering is crucial to promote rapid growth and tender leaves. Water carefully once the lettuce firms up and the heads begin to close.
