Plant seeds directly into the garden starting 4 weeks before average last frost date or as soon as the soil can be worked. You can also start seeds indoors 2-4 weeks before transplanting. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-70 degrees. Lettuce seed does not germinate well if soil temperature is above 80 degrees. Resume planting in late summer for a fall harvest. Lettuce is cold tolerant and will tolerate light to moderate frosts. Succession plantings every at 2 weeks intervals will provide a steady supply.

Easy to grow, tender and delicious; this is a family favorite! Our grand-daughter especially loves this variety!
Thank you for your wonderful review Cheryl! It's great to hear that our Freckles lettuce is not only easy to grow but that it's also a family favorite. We are so grateful for your support and for sharing your feedback with us.
I just planted seeds. We were too warm to plant until about 10 days ago. All seeds that I got from Bucktown are up and growing.
Thank you for your review, Sarah! We're so glad you've had success with all of our seeds and that you're enjoying them. We appreciate your kind words and we look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
