Pinetree Lettuce Mix - 1/2 ounce Packet

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.

Great germination and growth

I bought 10+ different varieties of lettuce. I usually start the seeds in my small hydroponic and then transplant them to the garden. So far, I would say 90%+ germination, except for one type that I didn't keep track of. They have gone into the garden fine and have been great through what has been a harsher than normal winter for us (middle Georgia), but still no snow or hard frost. No full 24 hours below freezing. With each warm day, they grow more. I have not gotten to experience how they do with heat.

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.
