Lactuca sativa and Beta vulgaris
We've combined our gala mix of lettuces with beet seeds for a hardy addition of sturdy beet greens to our lettuce mix. Plant every three weeks for a continuous harvest of young greens. Grows as well in the garden as in pots on the balcony. You may say this mix is "beta" than the other (how could we resist?) 28 days to maturity
Whether seeding into a pot or directly into the garden, be sure not to bury the seed too deep. Cover the seed lightly; approximately 1/8" with loose soil and pat down gently. Keep the soil consistently moist until the plants emerge. Being heat sensitive, lettuce will usually germinate best below 24 degrees Celsius.
