One of the most popular types of lettuces. Most people just think of the green romaine you get in the store, but there are so many other varieties to enjoy. Red tinged, speckled, tender or crisp, this blend contains them all. If you love romaine lettuce, this is the blend for you.
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.

This blend germinated well in my southern winter garden, surviving temps in the high 20's with no protection. Great variety of colors and sizes, nice and crunchy with a good romaine flavor.
