The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your Prizehead Lettuce from seeds!
Prizehead Lettuce is a beautiful and easy to grow loose-leaf lettuce that is prized for being very crisp and sweet. The frilly outer leaves are fringed with purple-bronze and cover the lime-green inner leaves. It has excellent taste and is perfect for salads. It is slow to bolt and ready as soon as 45 days from planting.
How to Grow Prizehead Lettuce From Seed
# 1 | Lettuce grows well in cool weather, so the first crop can be direct sown when the soil temperature reaches at least 35 degrees F, or as soon as the soil can be worked. If the soil temperature rises above 75 degrees F, your seeds will become dormant.
# 2 | Direct sow your prizehead lettuce seed in rich soil and full sun, spreading them as thinly as possible in rows 1-2' apart; when the seedlings begin to grow, thin them to a distance of 6-8".
# 3 | Succession crops can be grown for fresh lettuce all season in areas with cool summers or warm winters; this is accomplished by planting a new crop every 2 weeks.
