Tom Thumb Lettuce is the perfect miniature butterhead for your salads!  These small, compact plants produce creamy-yellow centers and med-green slightly crumpled leaves. They are perfect for home gardens and containers, and grow well in small pots. Tom Thumb Lettuce is an old American lettuce variety from the 1850's that is still going strong! 300mg ~ 300 seeds.

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.
