Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
Sow directly into the open from January to May or in autumn from September to November. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to November.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow directly into the frost-free open air from April to June. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from February to July.

General
We always recommend preculture for iceberg lettuce, and let the seedlings grow up to the first visible lettuce leaves in a small bowl, then pik into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at moderate temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings. The planting of the seedlings in the bed is carried out from the 2nd Pair of leaves after the cotyledders.
Salad plants prefer a sunny to partially shaded location with a moist, humus-rich and slightly loamy soil. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
For a long harvest period, harvest 1/4 of the leaves from the outside to the inside, taking care not to damage the heart to keep growth stable. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
A loosened soil and planting in mixed culture is sufficient for lettuce.

Germination ability of seeds: 3-4 years
