How To Grow 550 seeds/gram Similiar to growing heading type lettuce. Plant seed in successive crops every 2 weeks from April to mid June as long as weather is cool. Sow seed 3 mm (1/8") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart with the rows 40 cm (16") apart. Thin to 30 cm (12") apart. Keep evenly watered as water stress can lead to premature bolting and leaf bitterness. Fall crops can be attempted by seeding in mid to late August. This is a challenging plant to grow.
