Marvel Of Four Seasons Lettuce Seeds
[60 days] Dating back to the 1800’s, the Marvel of Four Seasons is a butter-head lettuce that is as tasty as it is beautiful. It sports a bibb-style rosette with an array of beautiful colours ranging in gold, bronze, red and green, depending on the season it’s grown in. (The darker colours develop more fully in cooler climates). The rosettes are 16-24cm (8"-12") in diameter, tender, and thrive in a range of climates.
Marvel of Four Seasons is fast maturing, slow to bolt, and tolerant of both high and low temperatures.
How do you grow lettuce from seed? When growing lettuce you should plant about 10 seeds per square foot, spacing your rows 12 to 18 inches apart. You can also sow and plant your lettuce seeds into small spaces and containers when required.
Do lettuce seeds need full sun to grow properly? It is true that lettuce will grow the fastest in full sun, however it is one of the few vegetables that can tolerate some shade without affecting growth. You will find that spring lettuce crops last longer when protected with shade from the warmer afternoons. Shading is also believe to give enough temperature drops to reduce bolting in spring time.
Does soaking lettuce seeds help germination? Many gardeners believe that soaking any seeds before planting can increase germination rates. You can pick and choose whether you want to experiment by soaking your lettuce seeds in water for at least 16 hours before sowing. Making sure that the seeds are placed in a well-lit area.
