Lettuces thrive in cooler zones. A good supply of old manure or compost will keep them moving and a consistent water supply is a must. Sowing the seed direct, as thinly as possible, will result in better lettuce but this may not always be practical. Watch for slugs as they love them and will hide in the base of the leaves. Sparrows can sometimes be a problem as well.
