The Q&A Archives: Lettuce

Question: Hello, here is my question I recently plant some lettuce seeds(about 2 weeks ago)in my garden after 3 or 4 day I saw lots of sprouts coming out then the next day they just completly disapier and this is the second time it happen what can it be? please help me.First timer.

Answer: Sounds like your seedlings could have become food for insects, may have dehydrated if they are planted in hot sunshine, or keeled over from a fungal disease. I'd start the seeds in little trays or pots somewhere safe from ground dwelling insect pests. Once they have developed two or three leaves you can transplant them into the garden. At that size they should be able to fend for themselves. Hope this helps!
