Growing Instructions

Sow direct seed 1” apart and ¼” in depth. Germination period is 7-14 days. Sow continuously for a constant supply of lettuce. Best grown in cooler weather. Plant in full sun or partial shade. Lettuce should be kept moist, since lettuce leaves are mostly water and will desiccate and wilt in strong sunlight and dry soil.
