How To Grow: Plant in full sun. Lettuce can take some shade.
Outstanding Features: You can plant lettuce every two weeks or so from spring until fall to have a continuous supply of fresh salad. Keep soil moist and fertilized.
Tips: Harvest as soon as the lettuce is 2 to 6 inches long. You can harvest the outer leaves and leave the inner leaves to mature or cut the whole plant back and let it flush out again. Cut in the morning if possible. Cut leaf lettuce can keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks. Avoid using pesticides on lettuce because it will absorb it. If pesticides are needed find one that is relatively harmless or organic.
