Heirloom Buttercrunch Lettuce Seeds Planting Guide
Here's how to sow your Buttercrunch Lettuce seeds:
In the early spring or fall, sow your seeds directly. Plant them 1/8 inch below the soil surface, spaced 8 to 12 inches apart. Rows should be 12 to 18 inches apart.
For a consistent supply, sow additional seeds every 2 to 3 weeks if you're harvesting whole heads. Remember that lettuce has shallow roots. Be careful when weeding to avoid disturbing the soil around your plants.
During dry spells, ensure your lettuce is well-watered, ideally watering deeply at least once a week if rainfall isn't regular. Mulch with compost or clean straw to help the soil retain moisture.
Heirloom Buttercrunch Lettuce Harvesting Guide
Here's how to harvest your Buttercrunch Lettuce:
As soon as a head has formed, it's ready for harvest. Cut off the heads 2 inches above ground level. New leaves will regrow from the center.
Alternatively, you can pick individual leaves before a head forms.
The earlier you harvest, the more tender the lettuce will be.
