Hi, gardeners, it is so nice that I found a forum for discussing gardening. I have a plan to start gardening lettuce and celery in my backyard. I was searching some tips as a beginner to vegetable gardening. . I saw somewhere that lettuce require partial shade and saw on another site that it requires the full sun. What is the ideal climate for growing them? What should I do to prevent any fungus activity on the plant? Also, is it possible to protect the seedlings from pests without using any pesticides, as I need it to be complete organic? I would like to get suggestions on this as I am a novice here.
