PLANTING

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

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 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.

will grow during winter in green house

i did this as a test to grow in the hoop house. it did wonderful all winter, well until the moles decided to have a feast day. i will have to dig out soil and put hardware cloth inside so next year i have lots of lettuce for winter. they also got my carrots every last one of them. they did excellent too.

Winter Pinetree Mix

I sowed part of the seed in a flat (on Jan. 10)- placed it over bottom heat - and it germinated on Jan. 14. Yay! I have the flat under lights (on a timer set for 15 hours). I will allow it to grow as it is - thickly planted - no thinning - and when it has a bit of size on it I will cut it for lunch salads. Thank you for such productive seeds! I have a picture of the flat but could not figure out how to attach it.

Best tasting lettuce

This is my favorite lettuce and i usually plant 3 or 4 types great taste long lasting growth holds up against heat very well here is southern kansas. The only drawback is i would like to plant it earlier but the order is held until they think it is when they would plant it.
