These varieties will extend the lettuce season into fall and winter. Plant after the heat of summer for an early fall crop (after Labor Day in southern areas), or plant in a cold frame in the north. Don’t plant too early or they’ll bolt. Mix contains Red Deer’s Tongue, Freckles, Green Ice and Buttercrunch lettuces. 500 seeds
Indoors - 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 1/4" deep in cells with soil temps 55-70 degrees. Transplant out 8-12" apart.
Outdoors - Sow 1/4" deep, 1" apart. Thin to 6-12", depending on the size of lettuce you want from baby to full heads. Keep moist during germination.
Harvest - Cut whole head at base or individual leaves before lettuce starts to bolts and becomes bitter in the heat and long day of summer.
Tips - Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix for a season long supply of lettuce.
