I grew a few types of lettuce last year, and noticed the butterhead survived the bugs better than the others. Maybe they don’t like butterhead? Anyway I left one to flower and it made loads of fluffy dry heads, a bit like little dandelions.
Earlier this year I carefully sowed some into a tray, lined up in neat rows. New shoots burst up! Only to all keel over after a week. That happens to me so often! Maybe I need to put the seeds deeper in the soil…
So a bit frustrated, I took a handful of seeds and just roughly stirred them into the flowerbed soil outside the window.
Now I have a load of butterhead lettuce! That turned out okay hey?
