Sowing: August to October

Harvesting: September to January

How To Grow Lambs Lettuce From Seed: Lambs Lettuce seeds do best when sown directly outdoors in late Summer and Autumn. Sprinkle the seeds thinly into a prepared drill, and cover very lightly with soil. When the seedlings establish, they can be thinned to leave 10cm between each plant. The thinnings can be eaten. 

When 4 to 5 leaves develop on the plants, they are ready to harvest. Lamb’s Lettuce can withstand frost, and will last through the Winter. If you sow the seeds successionally from August to October, you will have a consistent supply throughout Winter.
