Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Bibb Lettuce seeds are a butterhead variety considered a real delicacy among gardeners and salad connoisseurs.

Bibb Lettuce's small, somewhat loose-head is easy to grow, tender, and contains a distinctive flavor.

Early starting this cool-weather vegetable, it is advised to avoid bolting in hot weather.

It's known for its superior flavor and texture, and it can thrive and produce tender leaves in various growing conditions. The unique tolerance of this variety makes it perfect for growing in a range of climates, allowing growers to enjoy a consistent, flavorful harvest with every planting.

Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Sow Bibb Lettuce seeds directly in the garden as early as the soil can be made fine and loose. Plant seeds every 2", covering firmly with soil. Thin to 1 plant every 12" when seedlings are 2" tall. Harvest the entire Bibb lettuce head at maturity.

Planting Depth: 0.25"

Seed Spacing: Sow Bibb Lettuce seeds roughly 12" apart in rows, keeping rows approximately 18" apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Lettuce needs plenty of moisture. Also, fall crops may have to be started indoors since lettuce has a difficult time even germinating in hot weather. Transplant with care.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
