Sow seeds directly into soil with approximately 12 seeds per foot. Space rows 10 inches apart. Thin leaf lettuce/arugula/mizuna to 4 inch spacing and romaine and butterhead to 6 inch.
Depending on the seed, you will start to see germination in as little as 3 days. But plan for 2 weeks for most seeds.
Seeds are best planted the same year to avoid germination % decreases. If you are planting older seeds be sure to plant heavy and thin later. It is advised that you soak seeds 12 hours to increase germination.
It is best to provide a moderate amount of water frequently. Salad greens do not enjoy drought. Mulch with a layer of clean straw to help the soil retain moisture. Water deeply at least twice a week.
Lettuce and other greens require the soil to be fertile and rich when the seeds are sown. Amend with compost at planting or transplanting. Feed lettuce plants a balanced organic fertilizer.
Bolting is an expected outcome of lettuce and other greens, some varieties will begin to create seeds faster than others. When a lettuce plant bolts it creates a tall stalk that will grow flowers and eventually seeds. Once a plant has bolted the leaves are still edible but will be less tasty.
All of our seeds are heirloom variety, let the plants go to seed and collect the seeds for use next year.
Pick the outside leaves leaving the small inner leafs to continue growing. Use a clean sharp knife to cut the leafs at the base.
You will follow the same guidelines as cutting leaf lettuce. However it is less important to use a sharp knife on these plants, you can simply use your fingers.
Lettuce is edible at all stages, cut the entire plant at the base and rinse well.
