Congratulations on purchasing your Lettuce Garden !!!
The following step-by-step instructions will tell you how to start your garden.
STEP 1 : Unpack the potting mix bags and fill all the pots with the potting mix
STEP 2 : Pour about 2 glasses or 500 ml of water in each pot in order to wet the mix
STEP 3 : Choose 1 pot and pick up the Green lollo lettuce seed packet. Make 7 holes in each pot as shown below with your index finger. Make sure the holes are one cm deep and are at least one inch apart.
Sow 2 seeds and in each hole and close all the holes. Drench the pot with 3 glasses of water (750 ml )
STEP 4 : Repeat STEP 3 for Red Lollo Lettuce and Red romaine lettuce
Now that your garden is started; you should know how to take care of your plants the optimal way.
1. Water your pots, twice a day if the sun is shining bright and once a day if it’s cloudy.
2. There may be more than one plant per hole in every pot as we had sown 2 seeds in each hole. Select the strongest-looking plant in each hole and kill(uproot) the rest.
3. Maintain a weekly spray of neem oil; Add 10 ml of neem oil in 1 liter of water and mix 2-4 drops of any liquid soap (dishwasher, handwash, detergent, etc ). This will ensure the oil mixes with the water. Spray this mix on the leaves of all the plants for 7 days once.
4. Put abt 5 g of garden nutrients in each pot at 10-day intervals.
Your lettuce garden will be ready for harvest after 30 days from the date of sowing. You can harvest the leaves by cutting the bigger ones and leaving the smaller ones to grow. You can keep harvesting until you see a stem bolting from the root. Uproot and consume the plant and pant new seeds again.
Enjoy fresh and crunchy lettuces for your salads.
