  • Lettuce is hardy and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked. Can be direct seeded, 3 seeds every 8 inches in rows 8-12 inches apart, as early as the soil can be worked or grown indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Cover seed lightly with about 1/8 inch of fine soil, and firm soil gently.
  • Thin young seedlings to one plant per spot.
  • Sow every 3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh lettuce. Seeds germinate even at low 40-degree F soil temperature, but poorly above 75-85-degree F. In dry weather, keep soil moist.
