just had a nose in the what to do now section of GW.com. they recommend planting out lettuce??????? This time of the year you dont need to sow lettuce in pots, sowing direct is just as easy, it saves root disturbance and also saves the cost in not buying in compost. if you sow only 1/2 or 1/4 row at a time, you should always have room at the end of the row to sow fresh seeds a couple of weeks later giving a sucessional crop without the need to buy in compost. i dont understand why the recommend having to plant out.?????
