Lactuca sativa

Family
Asteraceae

Spacing
4 per square foot

Depth
Sprinkle the tiny seeds on top of the soil, then sprinkle soil on top of the seeds. When dispersing the seeds, try to respect the final 4 plants per square foot spacing so you don’t have to spend too much time thinning the plants when they sprout.

Requirements
Best in full sun, but can handle a bit of shade. pH around 6-6.5.

Germination
Seeds will sprout in 7-10 days.

Pests
Can be bothered by slugs or aphids. Pick off slugs at dusk and destroy. Wash off aphids with a strong jet of water.

Timing
Direct sow in the early spring and in the fall, or start transplants 2 or 3 weeks before hand to get an early start. Will get tough and bitter in hot weather.

Growing
Provide lettuce with lots of water and keep an eye out for slugs. Otherwise stand back and let it grow.

57 days

Season
Cool, annual
