#How to grow lettuce in spool at rooftop
Choose a warm sowing site in full sun with fertile, moisture-retentive soil. Weed thoroughly and dig in plenty of garden compost. Then rake the soil until fine and level, removing any large stones. Sow the small seeds thinly, 1cm (½in) deep, in rows 30cm (1ft) apart. If growing lettuce in pots, scatter seed sparingly over the surface of moist, peat-free seed compost and cover with a fine layer of compost or vermiculite. When the seedlings are big enough to handle, thin them out to 10-20cm apart. (You can use the thinnings in a salad.) Most leaf-type lettuce varieties will mature in seven to eight weeks, but can really be harvested anytime you see leaves big enough to eat. Just take off the outer leaves and let the inner leaves stay to get bigger. Head lettuce varieties take a little longer and are more sensitive to warm weather. https://www.facebook.com/dilshadrind.rind.7?mibextid=ZbWKwL https://www.youtube.com/@dilshadrindnewpunjabnurser2510 https://instagram.com/rind.dilshad?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y
