Organic Lettuce: Butterhead - Summer Bibb Planting Instructions:
Bibb Lettuce grows best in full sun or partial shade. It takes about 75 days between planting and harvest. Direct sow the seeds in early spring, planting ΒΌ" deep, spacing the plants out by 1". After the plants grow 2 or 3 true leaves, thin to 1' between plants. As an alternative, you can lightly broadcast the seeds in a patch instead of a row. Lettuce needs to be watered deeply at least once a week unless there is regular rainfall. Water more frequently during periods of drought. Add a layer of mulch or compost to help the soil retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Butterhead - Summer Bibb Harvesting Instructions:
For optimal quality, harvest the lettuce early, rather than late. If lettuce is allowed to grow for too long, it will become bitter and tough. Try to harvest in the morning or evening when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Freshly harvested lettuce can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days in a plastic bag.

almost all sprouted in 2 days March 10, 2017
Reviewer: Filita Fricke from Kingston, ID United States  
I planted 8 of these as soon as I got them. To my surprised I found 7 sprouted the second day and the 8th came up on the 3rd day,Cant wait till they come to maturity.I bought many other seeds but haven't had the chance to plant more yet but I am confident that they will all grow as these have. No worries or hurry to test them till I can get my beds ready. Thank you for a great product!
