How to Thin: Emerald Oak Lettuce

Emerald Oak Lettuce is a well-loved variety of greens. It can be grown for a full-head of lettuce, or harvested at a "baby-leaf" state. To grow lettuce for a full-head, make sure to thin plants as instructed below. Buttery-greens here we come!


HOW TO THIN Emerald Oak Lettuce:

  1. First, water the Seedsheet to saturate the soil and avoid damaging the roots. 
  2. Second, select the healthiest plants and gently pull out the extras with your thumb and pointer finger.
  3. Thin Emerald Oak Lettuce to 1-2 plants so they have enough room to grow.
  4. Pat down the soil around the remaining plants.
  5. The extra seedlings can be eaten (micro-lettuce!), replanted in another area of fresh soil, or composted.
  6. Watch the remaining plants grow large and lush leaves.

Happy Gardening!
