Botanical Interests Organic Salad Bowl Blend Leaf Lettuce Seeds
Salad Bowl Lettuce does not have an exotic name, but its name is very accurate for its performance. If you only plant one lettuce packet this season to keep your salad bowls filled with pretty and delicious leaves, this is the variety to choose. This packet contains a blend of Red Salad Bowl that has delicate, burgundy red, deeply lobed leaves and Green Salad Bowl that has long wavy green leaves. The two varieties mixed together make a beautiful presentation when served at the table! The red variety gets more intense color during cold weather, and both varieties stay tasty (and not bitter) when temperatures are warmer. Salad Bowl Lettuce is on of the most heat tolerant and bolt resistant varieties available. An old favorite as a standard for salad greens, it was an AAS winner in 1952. This packet plants: Five 10-foot rows or five successive plantings of 10-foot rows.
When to start outside: RECOMMENDED. Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before average last frost, and successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before the first fall frost. (Skip very hot summers.) USDA zone 8 or warmer: sow in fall for winter harvest.
When to start inside: 6 weeks before average last frost and in summer when soil temperatures are too warm outside to germinate lettuce seed."

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
