Gardening Coast2Coast (2): Lettuce
Seed Starting and Planting  to Harvesting, Bolting and Heat Tips

In our second Gardening Coast2Coast video I talk about general seed starting, planting and other tips. Kim cover's harvesting, feeding, bolting and growing lettuces in hot weather.  Information for every gardening zone!

Lettuces are cool weather crops that enjoy 44-50 degree nights and 60-70 degree days. Once the temperatures start getting hot it tends to bolt to flower and produce seeds. That is when your lettuces tend to turn bitter. So get them out early!

They can actually handle and frost and light freeze as their leaves can freeze through and thaw without damage.  They make great spring crops and don't forget the fall. This video gives you a lot of information plus other detailed links to help you grow lettuces in your garden!

Good Luck with Your Garden,
Gary (The Rusted Garden)
