PINETREE LETTUCE MIX - 1/2 OZ PACKAGE

(BEGIN HARVESTING IN 40 DAYS)
We have been experimenting with various Mesclun Mixes from France and Italy and you will find these in the greens section. We see a number of advantages to mixing greens: you get a variety of colors, textures, tastes and maturation times from the same planting. This mix has a uniquely American twist, however; they are all leaf lettuces and all sweet varieties. The mix will contain most of the loose-leaf varieties in the catalog and nearly a dozen others. This has become our best selling item and we continue to receive hundreds of compliments on it.

Approximately 15,000 seeds.

PLANTING

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75 degrees F. Soil above 75 degrees F inhibits germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

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. 

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before planting outsideSow 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.

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.  

Tips: 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.

Greenhouse experiment

I purchased this mix to try in my new greenhouse. The sunny day temperatures are around 80 and I keep the night temperatures in the mid 30’s. This mix is growing great. I’m about to have my first salad from my first planting. It’s very uplifting to see this beautiful mix on a cold dreary winter day.

I buy this mix every year!

Excellent item! Near 100% germination, rapid growth to cutting size; cut at least twice; variety is both beautiful and tasty.

The contents get smaller and the price keeps going up. Though a good lettuce mix! Haven't used it yet (April).
