Pinetree Lettuce Mix - 1/2 ounce Packet

9 reviews

Our lettuce mix includes over a half dozen varieties that we offer. A couple of each loose Leaf, butterhead, and romaine types with a variety of colors, textures, tastes, and maturation times. We like to grow this mix not just for full-sized heads but for baby greens as well, just sow seeds closely together in rows (50-60 seeds per foot) and harvest at 3-4”. Sow every 14 days for a continuous supply of greens all season. This has become our best selling item.

Approximately 15,000 seeds 

PLANTING

Lactuca sativa

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-70ºF. Soil temperatures above 75 ºF inhibit germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

Starting Indoors:  Start 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70ºF soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when the soil temperature reaches at least 50ºF. 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 1/2 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.

How much does a packet plant: 25-40 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads, full-sized or baby at the base, or snip 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.

Disappointing!

I had to wait for a very long time to get the seeds. They germinated quickly and grew well in the cooler weather. I have sown every 3 weeks. The all-green lettuces are healthier and tastier than the green ones with red flecks. I would not order this mix again.

Can't Believe I Waited So Long!

I have been a Pinetree customer for many years and never pulled the trigger on this lettuce mix, in spite of its fantastic reviews. I am so impressed. I planted the seed densely for baby "cut and come again" lettuces. I have "cut and come again" at least four or five times and there is still usable lettuce out there! These lettuces grow very quickly and it is a very pretty mix of varieties.

Delicious

Have always been satisfied with the service and the seeds I have received from this company. Have enjoyed many salads from this mix with enough to share with the pet goats. We are all very happy.

Incredible array of greens

The variety of lettuces in this mix is wonderful. Mixed with astro arugula, its the tastiest salad I’ve ever eaten.

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.
