Planting instructions: Plant in a spot with full sun and well-draining soil. Generally, lettuce plants need about 4-10” of space between each other. Larger plants like mustard and collards will need a little bit of extra space than that. Sow directly into the garden or start transplants undercover. Plant seeds about ¼ “ deep and water regularly.

Florida Leafy Greens Container Grown
So far, I have planted the Arugula and Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce.
Lettuce and tomatoes did well to varying degrees. The others barely made it or didn’t yield at all. South Florida is a tough growing environment, but these results were not great. Caveat: may be user error
Everything I have planted from u have done really well. Germination has been spot on and the plants seem to love our central FL weather. I will be buying again.
