I've about a dozen Little gem lettuce plants growing in pots....never grown them before. The plan was to grow tender salad veggies in beds in the back garden.
Ever so pleased with them, I'm surprised at how healthy they are, didn't expect them to grow and reach this stage. It seems a shame to plant them out to risk them being eaten by slugs/snails with only pellets for protection
Q - Would they grow on if I just pot up or will their roots be too restricted.

Pick them and eat them now.
I throw compost into the edges of my concrete yard and scatter lettuces seed and i promise you they will grow anywhere, with the littlest of effort and asstound you at how little care they need. (apart from picking and eating) Its amazing. You get big round heads of the stuff.
