Lactuca sativa var. romana 'Romaine ballon'
|Species:||Lactuca sativa var. romana|
- Main article: Lettuce
Sow thinly outdoors where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (12in) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Regular sowings every two to three weeks will ensure a continuous supply.
Thin out to 20cm (8in) apart.
Water well until plants are established.
