THINNING: Once plants are established thin 12 inches apart.

TRANSPLANTING: Seedlings started indoors can be planted outside after danger of severe frost has passed.

SPACING: Leave 18 inches between rows. For bedding in small areas, space 12 inches apart in all directions.

GERMINATION: Approximately one week to 10 days. Start seed in cool 55 to 6O F. temperatures.

Ed's Special Advice

Keep soil moderately moist. Well fertilized soil produces quickly grown, crisp leaf lettuce. Sow seeds every 2 weeks during the cooler parts of the growing season, for continued harvesting. A long standing leaf lettuce.
