These beauties have broad, softly ruffled, crispy-sweet leaves that grow into large rounded mounds of color and flavor. Their contrasting colors are stunning in the garden and perfect for sumptuous fresh salads. Fast growing and heat tolerant, Stardom is eye-catching whether grown in ornamental borders or vegetable gardens.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In cool spring weather, start seeds in full sun. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Keep evenly moist but not soggy. As seedlings begin to grow, it’s critical to thin out young plants to a final spacing of 10 inches apart so they have room to mature to large, leafy rosettes (extra seedlings will transplant easily to grow elsewhere).

Container Growing: Plan on 5 to 7 full heads in a 16 to 18 inch pot or a 9 x 12 inch windowbox; 3 full heads in an 8 inch pot.

 

GROWING NOTES

Lettuce thrives in cool conditions. Carefully thin and keep evenly moist for sweet tasting, full heads. For a constant supply, make several sowings a few weeks apart until summer heat comes on. In hot weather, give lettuce some afternoon shade and check water daily. Feed with liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks. Sow more seed in late summer for delicious fall harvests.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Use these beauties as a garden accent or colorful border. Or transplant seedlings around edges of a big pot holding a young tomato or pepper plant, then harvest when bigger plants need the space. Savor young thinnings in your first spring salads. Harvest mature heads when they are well filled out or harvest longest leaves from outside of each plant. Red lettuce seedlings grow slower than green, so thin green early to allow red plants room to grow.
