Romaine or cos lettuce is a variety of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) that grows in a tall head of sturdy leaves with firm ribs down their centers. Unlike most lettuces, it is tolerant of heat.
Cos Lettuce needs part sun & loamy soil. Lettuce prefers soil that is high in humus, with plenty of compost and a steady supply of nitrogen to keep if growing fast. Use organic compost or a slow-release fertilizer.
Before you plant your lettuce seeds, make sure the soil is prepared. It should be loose and drain well so it’s moist without staying soggy. To keep the soil fertile, feed it with organic matter about one week before you seed or transplant. Since the seed is so small, a well-tilled seedbed is essential. Large clods will reduce germination.
Plant 8 inches apart. rows of plants should be 12 to 15 inches across. Cover the seeds with ¼ to ½ inch of soil
Because lettuce grows quickly, the best approach is to plant a small amount at a time, staggering your plantings.
Plant your broccoli where it will get least 6 hours of sun daily and has fertile, well-drained, moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
The right pH and the organic matter help ensure that nutrients, particularly essential micronutrients like boron, are readily available. A boron deficiency can cause broccoli to develop hollow stems, but adding too much is toxic to plants
Broccoli is a moderately heavy feeder, so work in two to four inches of rich compost or a thin layer of well-aged manure before planting.
