Organic Green-Salad-Bowl-Leaf Lettuce Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Green-Salad-Bowl-Leaf Lettuce seeds take 28 days for baby greens and 50 days for full size maturity. Introduced in 1952, this bright green leaf lettuce has stood the test of time. Long, wavy leaves add loft to salads and have good taste. Heat tolerant and slow to bolt ensures a long harvest season. A grower’s favorite.
Lettuce prefers cool conditions and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. Best growth occurs at 16-18 degrees Celsius. Sow seed .3 cm deep, firm soil and cover lightly as some light is required for germination. Sow indoors 3-4 weeks before your transplant date. Outdoors space plants 21 cm apart in rows 30-45 cm apart. Continue to sow every 3 weeks throughout the season for a continuous supply of fresh greens. Many lettuce varieties will not germinate at temperatures over 24 degrees Celsius. Sow seed in a shaded location mid-summer. Some varieties do well in the unheated winter greenhouse.
