Lettuce Plants

Lettuce plants are grown for their edible leaves that are most commonly used in salads. Most lettuce provides a moderately good source of vitamin C, calcium, iron, copper and dietary fiber.

Planting your lettuce seedlings is very easy, simply remove the plant from the container and place into the soil the same depth as it was in the container. Plants do best in full sun for cool-weather areas, and partial sun in warmer climates or for summer plantings. Don't water very often: as long as the soil stays moist, it will grow wonderfully. Feed lettuce every three weeks with a seaweed fertilizer. Leaf lettuce may be cut whenever it is large enough to use. Cutting every other plant at ground level gives the remaining plants more space for growth. Head lettuce should be harvested when the heads are firm and fully formed.
