Growing lettuce in pots

Posted: 26/03/2016 at 20:38

I have grown some in a deep seed tray, I can then pick off the outside leaves and they will grow again, keep sowing in succession, who wants 100 lettuses ready to eat in one week. I do the same with radish, sow a dozen in a large ice cream tub or similar, then again in two weeks time. 

Can you identify this plant?

There are times when we just have to admit that theOH is right

That's what I mean Nut, they drop thousands of seeds, never to be seen again, so I pick them up and start off next spring indoors.

I have never got any to germinate in the garden. Always sown indoors.

Probably not warm enough to germinate, are you giving then a constant 21c you could try bringing them indoors on a warm window sill.

Is this plant a fern?

Looks like an ivy.

I think I must have been hard on my children when they were young, if they didn't do anything, they didn't get anything.

if the washing wasn't in the bin it didn't get washed, if they didn't clean their rooms, they lived in the mess,  their clean clothes were placed on their beds, if they chose to put it on the floor and not in the drawers, they wore it creased up.

if they used all the mugs without washing any, they either had to wash them or use a dirty one. Oh, I was cruel.

two beautiful people now though, and both encourage their own off spring to do jobs in the house.

its the 12 year olds duty to empty the dish washer and put it all away before he goes to school, it just comes naturally to him now, he never questions it.

I do love the mag, but oh dear, don't they contradict.

I noticed in this months a question someone asked about growing Zantedeschia, the reply was... Good free draining compost, water carefully. Grow under glass or on the patio.

i looked in a previous mag,.....the same plant, .... Grow in poorly drained soil, bog garden or even in 30cms of water. 

I'm digging a pond by hand...
