Lettuce is a cool season crop. Very easy to grow. Great for container gardens! Lettuce can be grown in shallow containers because lettuce doesn't have long roots.
For best results, lettuce can be grown to maturity in cool weather when the average daily temperature is between 55F-70F. If the soil temperature rises above 75F, the seeds become dormant..In dry weather, keep soil moist and during germination. At high temperatures, growth is stunted, lettuce can turn bitter tasting, or bolt to seed rather than producing edible parts. Except in coldest climates, plant them in very early spring so the crop will mature before summer heat settles in, or in late summer for a crop in fall in winter.
Most lettuces can endure short periods of frost. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh lettuce
In warm regions, plant cool season crops from late summer to early fall for harvest in late fall, winter, or early spring.
