Organic Lettuce: Romaine - Rouge D'Hiver Planting Instructions:
Direct sow in the early spring. Seeds can also be planted in the fall. Plant 8" apart and ⅛" below the surface. Space rows 12 to 18" apart and keep the soil well-watered during dry periods. Rouge D'Hiver Lettuce does best with full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. Grow time is 55 to 65 days. Because lettuce is shallow-rooted, be careful not to disturb the soil around the plants when weeding. Plants need to be watered deeply at least once a week, and more frequently in times of drought. Mulch with a layer of compost or clean straw to help retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Romaine - Rouge D'Hiver Harvesting Instructions:
For the best quality, harvest lettuce early. Allowing lettuce to grow too long allows it to become bitter and tough. It is best to harvest in the morning or evening, when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Fresh lettuce can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days after harvest.

The best seeds we've ever planted April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Beth from Warner, NH United States  
Our family began using My Patriot Supply seeds last year and were very impressed with the quality and crop we received. These are high quality seeds that I can feel good about knowing they are GMO free. This spring I planted early and a friend came to help. She brought some organic seeds from a different company to plant as well and within 24 hours the MPS seeds were already sprouting while hers took more than a week to begin popping up. I highly recommend MPS to anyone who is looking to plant a garden!

Great buy! July 5, 2014
Reviewer: Heather M. from WA United States  
These were beautifully packaged. A great buy, too. I would absolutely buy from them again. I also bought other seeds and feel the same way about them, too.
