Cultivation: Lettuce is adaptable to many growing conditions, but likes it cool around 60F-65F. Grow in spring and fall, and slow bolting by shading summer crops. In cool areas sow seeds in spring-early summer after last frost in a sunny location. In temperate areas, sow in spring and fall. In tropical areas, sow year-round. Seeds need light to germinate, so do not plant too deep. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Keep soil moist. Moisture stress and high temperatures encourage bolting. Make succession plantings every week or two.
Cut lettuce holds best when harvested in the morning and cooled rapidly. For salad mix or baby leaf production, harvest individual leaves when they reach desired size, or cut evenly across the bed making sure to stay above the growing tip. For a continuous harvest, sow lettuce every 3 weeks.
