Recommended Planting Requirements: Lettuce is a cool-season plant and can be succession planted most months of the year in mild climates. For warmer regions, lettuce should be grown in the cooler months or in protected culture to keep it cool. You can use shade cloth to extend the season and keep lettuce from wilting. Light soils with good drainage will give you the best harvest of lettuce. You can direct sow or transplant lettuce. When direct sowing lettuce, make sure you can keep the soil moist the whole time for even germination.

Growing Recommendation: Watering regularly is critical to good growth. In warmer climates watering more often may be needed. Some areas with hot spring and fall conditions should use shade cloth to protect lettuce and extend the season. The heavy application of mulch can really help to keep the soil cool and evenly moist in warm climates. For Southern California and the America Southwest, we recommend applying at least 6″ of mulch.
