Growing Guide for Mixed Lettuce:
Plant your lettuce in an area that receives partial sunlight. It can tolerate a bit of shade, making it versatile for various garden setups.
Ensure well-draining, nutrient-rich soil. You can improve your soil’s quality by adding compost or organic matter before planting.
- Begin by sowing your lettuce seeds 1/4 inch deep in rows spaced about 12 inches apart. If you’re transplanting seedlings, ensure each seedling is spaced about 6-8 inches apart.
- Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
- Regularly thin your seedlings to prevent overcrowding, ensuring that each plant has enough space to grow and develop.
- Mulch around the lettuce plants to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and reduce weed growth.
- Water consistently to keep the soil evenly moist, but avoid wetting the foliage to prevent fungal diseases.
Depending on the variety, you can start harvesting young leaves as soon as they reach a size you desire or wait until the heads are fully formed. Use clean, sharp scissors to cut the leaves or heads at the base, allowing the plant to continue producing.
