How easy to grown lettuce in pots or containers
Posted by Emily Y on
Lettuce is one of fast growing vegetables. It’s pretty easy to grow in pots or containers as their roots don’t need deep soil.
You can plant lettuce in any plastic pots or garden bags, but make sure that the pots have drainage holes in the bottom.
Sow seeds 6” – 12” apart and cover with about 1/4” soil.
Choose a quality soil mix as it has plenty of nutrients.
Keep soil slight moist and don’t let soil dry out.
Best soil temperature for emerging is 60 to 75 degrees, seed may emerge in 7 to 10 days.
You can just harvest outside leaves so that the center leaves can continue to grow. The best time to harvest vegetable crops is morning time, you can get peak flavor and quality.
