Lettuce - Garden Mix - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual A mix of equal parts of Silvia, a red romaine, Flame, a red loose leaf type, Great Lakes, a green iceberg, and Merveille de 4 Seasons, a bi-color butterhead lettuce. The seeds are not color coded.

Soil and Water: Likes full sun. In the summer it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness. Liquid fertilizer is not recommended as concentrations tend to affect the taste of the leaves

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the entire plant when mature, but still young and crisp. All lettuces are at their best when picked as needed and used immediately. Head lettuce will only last a few days in the refrigerator before deteriorating.

Did You Know? The botanical name means 'milk sap'. Lettuce belongs to the sunflower family. Darker green leaves are healthier than lighter leaves.
