Gourmet Salad Blend Lettuces includes 5 lettuce varieties that are known for their flavorful qualities, custom blended together, creating a colorful and textural mixture. These are all recommended by local market gardeners and chefs.
The varieties included are Dark Lolla Rossa, Silvia, Flame, Buttercrunch and Vivian.
Lettuce does well with beets, bush beans, pole beans, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, onion, radish and strawberries in your garden or containers. You can also plant your lettuce at the base of young sunflowers for a little shade.
Plant: Directly sow the seed into well-drained fertile soil with lots of added organic matter as soon as it can be worked in the spring or in a patio container. Repeat at 2-week intervals until late spring. Sow the seed again in the late summer to early fall.
Care: Water generously and fertilize when plants are 3” (7.5 cm) tall. Provide light shade for the late spring and summer plantings.
Harvest: Pick the individual leaves anytime as needed. The flavor is best for salads when the leaves are still young and small. Mature leaves can be used braised, in stir-fry and soups.
Your Health: Green leafy vegetables are low in saturated fats, and are a good source of dietary fiber and are a good source of many vitamins and minerals.
