How To Grow Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce From Seed: Using seedling modules or small pots, sow 1 seed in each cell/pot. Germination should take 1 to 2 weeks. When large enough to handle, transplant outside, setting plants 30cm apart.

Alternatively, direct sow mid-April onwards into 1cm deep drills, and thin to one plant per 30cm when the seedlings establish.

When the leaves are large enough, harvest them. New growth will then start in the centre of the plant. Harvest regularly so the leaves remain tender. The plant will eventually bolt to seed.
