Winter Density

65 days — 'Winter Density' is kind of an interesting variety in that some would categorize it as a Romaine-type and some a Bibb-type. It basically is a tall buttercrunch. The heads are dark-green, heavy and compact reaching eight ten inches in height and across. 'Winter Density' is slow to bolt in the heat and is tolerant of some frost which makes it suitable for growing in succession plantings through the gardening year. It is an older English variety, also popular in France and known as 'Craquante D'Avignon'. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Lettuce and other greens thrive in cool spring and fall weather (50° F to 60° F). A few greens can handle summer heat, but most of them prefer the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. Most lettuce and greens can withstand occasional exposure to light frost but if very cold weather is coming, protect your plants with a frost cover.

Sowing: Prepare the seedbed outdoors using a hard tined rake, smoothening out the soil. Lightly sow and just barely cover the seeds with soil. Keep soil moist until germination is achieved. You can also start seeds indoors by sowing into seed starting trays using fresh new seed starting potting mix into clean seed starting trays. Just barely cover the seeds and keep well watered until they sprout. Harden off and transplant into the garden after about 3 weeks.
