Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-9):
As soon as the ground is workable in the spring, sow the seeds 1/2 inch deep in soil, 12" apart, in rows 18" apart. Likewise, you can start the seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting out when there is 4-6 mature leaves and a developed root system and water thoroughly after transplanting. For a fall crop, start sowing 8 weeks before the first fall frost. Germinates best in soil that is 55-65°. Firm the soil lightly. While growing, keep the soil well watered. They prefer cooler weather, but need sunlight to grow properly. Consider planting rows of chives or garlic between your lettuce to control aphids. They act as “barrier plants” for the lettuce.
