Planting Method: Direct Sow or Transplant
To Direct Sow: As soon as soil can be worked, can be sown thru til 6 weeks before first frost in fall, every three weeks for continual harvest . Sow seeds 1 inch apart in rows 12″ apart. Enjoy thinnings and leave 12″ between plants. We love to sow baby salad greens around young tomatoes and other long-season crops that are initially small, harvesting greens for the first ~6 weeks before the tomato is huge.
For Transplanting (full size only): Indoors, sow 2 seeds/cell early spring & thin to 1. Harden off & transplant around last frost. Succession sow every 3 weeks until early fall.
Seed Depth: 1/8 inch Sun Needs: Full/Part
Days to Germination: 3 at 75°F (21°C); 8 at 60°F (13°C)
Spacing (after thinning/transplanting): 10-12 inches for full heads; rows 12 inches apart
Ample water grows sweetest lettuce!
