Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Lollo Rossa Darkness Planting Instructions:

Lollo Rossa Darkness Lettuce prefers full sun, but will also grow well in partial shade. This hardy plant is friendly to most growing regions. Direct sow in early spring or fall, planting the seeds 1/8 inch deep and 1" apart. Plant in rows spaced 12 to 18" apart. Once the seedlings grow 1 to 2" tall, thin them to stand 8" apart. Keep the plants well-watered during dry periods. Because lettuce is shallow-rooted, you will want to be careful not to disturb the soil around the plants when weeding. Unless there is regular rainfall, you will need to water the plants deeply at least once a week. Use a layer of compost or dry straw to help the soil retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Lollo Rossa Darkness Harvesting Instructions:

Lettuce is at peak quality when harvested early rather than late. If you leave the lettuce too long, it will grow bitter and tough. Harvest in the morning or evening when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Freshly harvested lettuce can be stored for 5 to 7 days in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
