Grow Lettuce

Category: General – Robert – 5:01 pm

Lettuce is a great fall, winter and spring vegetable in Houston.  It makes a nice landscape plant because of its variety of vibrant colors-various shades of green and red.  Plant lettuce instead of flowers at the front of beds.  The bright green lettuce shown below on the left is Black Seeded Simpson—a great variety that produces large, very tender leaves.

Lettuce can also be readily grown in pots if you have limited space.  This pot is full of Winter Density—a romaine type lettuce that does well in Houston.
