Two things to do before sowing seeds: select a sunny spot and make sure the soil is well prepared.
The soil should be loose and drain well so it’s moist without staying soggy. To keep the soil fertile, feed it with composted organic matter about one week before you seed or transplant. Since the seed is so small, a well-tilled seedbed is essential. Stones and large clods of dirt will inhibit germination. Lettuce does not compete well with weeds. Before you plant, ensure the ground is prepared. Rotating locations from year to year helps control most diseases. Closely spaced plants will help control weeds.Click here to download our free vegetable growing guide
