Prizehead Leaf Lettuce first appeared in 1889 in Maule's Seed catalogue. It may be older, but seems to be carried by most major seed companies after this time.
Can be cultivated when mature or pick off outer leaves. Great in salads, sandwiches and even soups or grilled.
When to sow: Please note the below are recommendations, I know many gardeners who break rules with great results by growing crops sheltered by others etc. These are based on the many (yes there are many) garden guides that often have variations as well as feedback from my regular buyers and growers. It’s all part of the fun J but hop it helps
There are many good online sites that I am sure you can find, if not email and I will help. Gardening Australia (ABC show) and others are a great reference.
Lettuces need good soil, light, free draining and rich in organic matter. It needs to hold lots of water and lots of nitrogen and other nutrients. Full sun in cooler climates and colder months and semi shade in hotter periods/climates.
Lettuces need lots of everything, and they want a steady supply of it. Any set back they suffer will at least make them tough and bitter, at worst it will cause them to bolt to seed straight away without making any leaves for you! So make sure they never get stressed (e.g. by forgetting to water them).
Growing Lettuce From Seed:
An excellent contribution to the vegetable garden!

General Planting Tips:
· As a general rules seeds need to be planted to a depth 1 ½ to 2 times their size for a good strike rate.
· Factors influencing strike rate are moisture, temperature, seed quality, soil PH and temperature (and your green thumbs J )
· Plant more seeds than required in an area. This allows for seeds that don’t germinate or are eaten by insects. Then thin/relocate some plants once they appear.
· Against each seed type I place a recommendation on how easy it is to transplant, where hard it is heavily advisable to sow direct in the garden as the failure rate is likely to be high if you plant in a pot for later transfer.
· For root crops (carrots, parsnip etc) remove rocks to help with straighter vegetable crops
· My postage is free and postage is swift but if you want express postage I can accommodate that at Australian Post rates.
