How to Grow Lettuce at Home

  • There are many kinds of lettuce: butter lettuce, rosa and mustard lettuce to name a few. Experiment and grow your favourites.
  • Lettuce germinates readily, sometime within one to two days of planting. Exposing the seed to light before planting the seed stimulates germination. The small seeds can be scattered on the surface of the soil, either in a seed tray or bed. A light covering of soil is needed.
  • Transplanting lettuce in the organic garden Once the seedlings are about eight centimetres tall they can be transplanted to where you want them to grow in the organic garden. If growing in situ, you can thin the seedlings. It takes about 2 months for lettuce to reach maturity after transplanting. Grow a variety of Lettuce in the semi-shade
  • Lettuce prefers to grow in a semi-shaded position in the summer, as it tends to bolt in the very hot summer conditions. The term "bolt" means that the lettuce starts to become elongated and send out a stem on which to produce flowers. When lettuce bolts it will flower and produce seed, which can be harvested if you have a particular kind of lettuce that you would like to grow again in the next season.
