Planting instructions

Due to the small seed size , a well-tilled seedbed is essential. Large clods will reduce germination

Direct sowing is recommended as soon as the soil can be made. Plant seeds ½ inch deep.

You can sow seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before spring for an early crop. Harden off seedlings for approximately one week, and transplant outside either 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the winter ends.

Seeds may be sown in single rows with proper spacing. Leaf Lettuce - Plant 6 -8 inches apart.

Your rows of plants should be 12 to 15 inches across. Pass over the seeds with ¼ to ½ inch of soil.

how to harvest

Lettuce should be harvested when it is nice, tender, & fully matured in size just before adulthood.

Before maturity, you can harvest leaf lettuce by simply removing outer leaves so that the centre leaves can grow unhindered. A second harvest is often possible this way. Crisphead lettuce is picked when the core is firm.

Mature lettuce gets bitter and woody and it will go bad quickly, so keep harvesting accordingly.

As time elapses, cut the whole plant from the ground.
