One of the benefits of growing your own salad is having fresh salad greens. Lettuce is so much better just picked, and this mix of leaf lettuces lends itself to beautiful and fun fresh salads. Just go out, pick a few leaves of each kind, and leave the rest of the head to produce more leaves for later. Or harvest the tops of a lot of baby lettuces, leaving the base of the stalk and the roots in the ground. The base will produce another crop of leaves, giving you yet another harvest.
Minimum of 1800 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 0-1/4 inch
Plant Spacing: 3-6 inches
Row Spacing: 12-18 inches
Recommended: Direct seed in spring 2-4 weeks before last frost.
You can also start indoors and transplant when individual plants are about 3 inches tall.
In fall, plant 6-8 weeks before first frost.
Lettuce does not like heat and will get bitter and bolt (go to flower) if the temperatures are too warm. Cut off the flower stalks to extend the life of your lettuce. You can also bring indoors, if in a planter, and set in a sunny (preferably southern facing) window to extend the life of the plant.
