Growing Tips

Lettuce is very hard and may be planted as soon as the ground can be worked in early spring. Seed may also be sown indoors 4-5 weeks prior to planting. If direct seeding, sow seeds about 12-15 per foot, 3-5mm (1/8-1/4") deep, spacing the rows 30-45cm (12-18") apart. to avoid overcrowding, ensure head lettuce is thinned early to 30cm (12") apart.
