Baby Oakleaf Lettuce (45-50 Days)

$ 2.50

The Baby Oakleaf Lettuce is our favorite for both flavor and ease of harvest because the compact bunch of loose and frilly leaves are borne on a single stalk, just the right amount to make a salad for two. More compact and vigorous, designed for smaller gardens with tighter spaces.

300 seeds

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 60-75ºF. Soil above 75 ºF inhibits germination.

Tips: The Oakleaf Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well-rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.
