Lettuce Growing Tips and Advice

There are lots of different types of lettuce, but the basic guidelines for growing lettuce remain the same. Lettuce likes cool weather and cool soil, because in the heat it tends to "bolt," which means that it goes to seed and the leaves stop growing. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy and too wet. Fertile soil is best. If you're planting in warm weather, plant in a partially shaded area, or in the shade of taller vegetables like broccoli or corn. Lettuce does very well in containers, because it has shallow roots and only needs a soil depth of about 9 to 12 inches.


 

Planting Lettuce

Plant peppers 1/4 inch deep, 1 to 2 inches apart, in rows spaced 16 to 24 inches apart. Thin the plants so that they are 6 to 8 inches apart.

Days to harvest: 45 to 90 days
Days to germinate: around 7
