LETTUCE Approximately 25,000 seeds per oz.
HEAD LETTUCE: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Use Jiffy 7’s or a flat and inserts with a
good soil substitute, like Berger BM-2. Place seeds not over 1/4″ deep. Germinate at room temperature. Head lettuce seeds
may also be sown outdoors like leaf lettuce. For nice big heads space plants 6-8″ apart. To harvest, cut head off after they
form, just above roots. Use fresh. Leaf types: Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be tilled. Place seeds 1/4″ deep,
1″ apart. For a constant supply, sow lettuce every 2 weeks far as long as weather stays cool. To harvest, cut leaf lettuce, 1-2″
above ground. Use fresh in salads, wilted lettuce or in sandwiches.
For leaf and head lettuce, you will need 1/2 oz seed per 100′ row, 30,000 plants per acre if transplanted or
1 pound of seed if direct seeded. PKT size: Simpson Elite & Summertime 1/8 oz. Rest 1/4 oz.
