Growing Media

01

Grow

Oak Leaf lettuce grows best in full sun, but will also do well in partial shade. The plants need moist, well-drained soil to thrive. Baby leaves can be harvested at about 30 days. The plants will mature in about 50 to 60 days.

02

Planting and Harvesting

Plants require partial shade in warm climates, rich, well-drained soil and regular water. Sow directly into prepared beds 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost.

03

sowing

Sow directly in the ground, lettuce grows well in cool weather. Sow seeds in an interval of two weeks for continual harvest. Plant in full sun to partial shade.

03

Planting

Plant container grown plants out when the risk of frost has passed, in rich moisture retentive soil. Watch out for slugs and snails – treat with pellets, or barriers (egg-shells, saw-dust, or copper tape) to avoid damage to the plants

03

AEROPONICS

Cuttings will root in aeroponic systems.

Care

01

WATER

water in the morning so plants have a chance to dry off during the course of the day. A layer of organic mulch will help to maintain soil moisture, protect roots, and prevent weeds

02

NUTRIENTS

Requires high levels of nutrients. Amend soil with compost and aged manure before planting. Fertilize 3–5 times during the growing season using a balanced liquid fertilizer, compost tea, and/or liquid seaweed.

04

Sun Light

It also does well grown in containers, or in salad boxes. You can harvest individual leaves, or cut the whole plant at ground level.

05

Fertilize

Fertilize as often as every two weeks, with liquid fertilizer from a watering can, or granules scattered around the plants and watered in. Fertilizer helps plump up the leaves and chase away the bitterness so often found in garden-grown lettuce. And it helps keep it growing.

Nutrients

01

NUTRITIONAL

Potassium helps your kidneys get rid of more sodium through your urine. This in turn lowers your blood pressure. Leafy greens, which are high in potassium, include romaine lettuce.

02

MEDICINAL

If large quantities of lettuce take the place of other nutritious foods, you won’t get all your daily nutrients. This type of imbalanced diet will not support your health. While getting more fiber by increasing lettuce intake is healthy, you may experience digestive problems if you overindulge.
