Metta Lettuce Seed Pack
A mix of colors and textures for baby leaf lettuce. Enjoy all season long.
Contains Flashy Butter Oak, Rouge d'Hiver, Buttercrunch Bibb, Tango, and Hyper-Red Rumpled Wave lettuces.
-Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer sowings promptly to beat bolting. Succession sow 2-3 weeks apart until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Cut each seeding 2-3 times before moving on to the next. You can also thin and allow plants to produce mature heads. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best-tasting leaves.
-Days to germination: 3-10 days. Days to maturity: 28 days for baby greens harvest.
