HOW TO GROW LETTUCE

Start indoors 4-5 weeks before last frost, plant out 4 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 8–10 weeks before first frost. Direct seed after last frost 1” apart, thin. Plant every 2–3 weeks to ensure continuous crop. Avoid sowing one long row all at once. Choose bolt-resistant varieties for summer harvest. Lettuce seed can enter thermal dormancy at high temperatures, see optimum germination temps.
