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. Full of color, texture and shapes, this blend contains green and red, frilly and flat, crisp and tender, everything you could want. 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 the baby greens, leaving the base and roots in the ground. The base will produce another crop of leaves for a future harvest.
Minimum of 250 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.

We planted this last year. I think I gave it one square foot and we got a huge salad every other day. I'm planting it again this year. It did well in our hot Houston area weather.
We planted this lettuce mix last year and we are getting it again for this coming Spring! It was so easy and it just kept coming back. It was tasty and we were even able to throw more than a couple dinner parties with fresh salads all using this blend.
I love how this lettuce would grow after cutting. It has kept the rabbit happily munching away. I thought it was a little to bitter for my taste.
The seed came up nicely and is producing lots of lettuce. The lettuce is sweet, tender and delicious. I have it growing in a large container on my front porch. I cut enough to fill a large bowl every other day! This is a terrific blend of lettuces and I am very happy with this choice.
wow...i am so impressed with this blend!! I planted the first round in March and harvested through May...and in 100 degree weather I am still harvesting the second panting!! Highly prolific and excellent flavor, i will definately be coming back for more
