Lactuca Sativa

300 seeds

 

The solution to all the fuss of tainted Romaine lettuce in the stores, grow your own! There is nothing fresher and safer than straight out of your garden.

This is an heirloom lettuce that is highly prized in New England where it was originally introduced. Nice crisp and crunchy hearts.

These are frost hardy and ideal temperatures are between 60 and 80 degrees. These are a perfect late summer/early fall planting in cold climates and late fall or winter crop for zones 9+.

Space close together for baby greens and 10 inches apart for full heads. Harvest time is 85 days and only a few weeks for baby greens!

Seeds sprout in only 7-10 days for a quick harvest for baby greens. You can snip them near the base multiple times and they will regenerate. Allow to grow to full heads if desired.

This is for 300 Heirloom Non GMO seeds for a good sized row of baby greens or up to 300 full heads of lettuce.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

Plant when temperatures are at or below 75 degrees. Germination is very poor over 75 degrees. Planting time is determined by your climate. Cooler climates can generally plant from spring to fall. Warmer climates should plant in fall, winter or spring.

Prepare a bed by digging down a few inches into the soil and mixing, garden soil, organic or a mixture of both in with your native soil. Thoroughly wet the soil before planting , so seeds aren’t washed out of place by watering heavily after. Lightly press the seeds into the soil so that they are covered by only 1/8 of an inch of soil. Space the seeds 1 foot apart if you wish to grow full heads. Plant them as close as 4-6 inches apart if you want baby lettuce greens that you can snip and allow to regrow. Heads are ready for harvest in only 60 days. Baby lettuce is ready when it is the desired size. Simply snip the leaves at the base so they can re-grow. Heads are ready for harvest in 60 days. Baby lettuce is ready very quickly, when it is the desired size.

A NOTE ON SEED STORAGE:

The key for seed storage is cool, dark and dry. If your temperatures are not quite right for planting, you can keep the seeds viable by keeping them in the plastic bag that I send them in (which is thick and food grade for specifically this purpose,) place that in a paper bag to block light and put it in your refrigerator until you are ready to plant. This can be done with most all seeds and will keep them viable for 1-5 years depending on the species. If you have a basement, you can store them there as well. A sealed mason jar in a paper bag is also ideal.
