LOOSE-LEAF Lettuce Seeds
Lactuca sativa (Open Pollinated)
Loose-leaf lettuce is the best lettuce type for harvesting leaf by leaf, rapidly re-growing new, mild, crunchy leaves. Because loose-leafs do not form heads, you can plant as close as 4 in. apart; perfect for gardens with limited space or for container vegetable gardening. Plant every two weeks, starting in early spring, for late spring/early summer harvest, and then sow more seeds in mid to late summer for a fall harvest.
