Different foliage colors on all lettuce
Days to Maturity: 45 from direct sow
This delicious Organic Tricolor Romaine Blend lets you grow exactly what you need for the perfect salad.
This collection is cool season and can tolerate a slight frost. Lettuce and greens are best started outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring or late summer (for a fall crop). For those living in zones 8 and warmer, sow your seeds in early fall for a winter harvest.
As long as the temperature stays below 80 degrees Fahrenheit, you can keep making successive sowings—every two weeks is typical—to extend your harvest. As summer approaches, however, you will want to plant varieties that tolerate heat and resist bolting (producing flowers and seeds too soon).
If you choose to sow your seeds indoors, do so 4 weeks before planting out, at a temperature of 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Expect germination in 7 to 10 days.
