Recommended Planting Requirements: Light soils with good drainage will give you the best harvest of lettuce. For southern California growers, this may mean incorporating in large amounts of compost in soil that is less than desirable. The compost will inoculate your soil with important soil biology, retain more moisture in the soil, and improve tilth. Greens enjoy cool temperatures and adequate moist in the soil. If you plan to plant during a part of the year that is warmer, use shade cloth to protect the greens and keep them from turning bitter. Coastal gardeners and farmers can grow greens year-round.  Need help starting your seeds? Check out our seed starting videos on YouTube.

Growing Recommendation: Watering regularly is critical to good growth. In warmer climates watering more often may be needed. On our farm, we transplant out our greens by first starting them in the greenhouse. This allows for perfect spacing and better germination rates than directly sowing into the ground. If you desire to direct sow the seeds into a pot or garden bed, make sure the ground you are planting into is thoroughly moist. This may mean saturating a garden box or pot prior to planting.

Harvesting & Storage: Mixes may be utilized as a cut and come again crop. Simply cut plant 2” away from the base to allow regrowth. Cuttings may be kept moist in a salad spinner for several days.
