Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.
Starting Indoors: 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

This is a great lettuce...not fussy to grow and each head is the perfect size; fits in the palm of my hand. Also reliably germinates and tolerates a variety of growing conditions.
It grew very well outside in a raised bed but I planted to thickly and have been eating only thinnings but am hoping the rest grows to full size.
