Lettuce in Bloom
  Lettuce in Bloom March 12, 2011
Requires light, sandy, humus-rich, moist soil. Dry conditions can cause the plants to go to seed (known as bolting). It is normally grown by early and late sowing in sunny positions, or summer crops in shade.Ideally, lettuce plants require a rich, humous-laden soil that will hold moisture in the summer. They may require the soil to have lime added as a soil pH of 6.5 is just right. Quite often though, lettuce is grown between rows of slower growing plants like brussel sprouts or broccoli etc. Th Lettuce in Bloom
