    Hi Charles and fellow gardeners,

    I planted my lambs lettuce in my polytunnel a while back and I think it is nearly ready for harvesting. Do I pull the whole plant out or can I just crop some of the leaves? What would happen if I leave it in the ground for a few more weeks to harvest when required?

    Depending on the variety and season, lambs lettuce rarely grows large, especially between now and early March.
    If you leave it to grow, keep watered to prevent mildew.
    Or you can cut the main rosette, not too low so that side-shoots can grow out of the stem below where you cut.
    Don’t pull it out or your chance of more harvests is gone.
