    What happens if your start is real "leggy"? I'm not sure if mine are but as I watch other videos I've seen a couple people mention someone's crop being leggy. Does that affect the quality? Possible quantity? Is there a way to correct this? Should I continue with what I have or start again?

    I saw leaf lettuce in a large pot being sold at BJs store. It had leaves of various types of lettuce leaves. I was tempted to buy it but wasn't sure if after I picked the leaves that that would be it for the planter and I'd have to throw it away or if the leaves would continue to grow and we would have lettuce all summer.
    If I do buy it I shod keep it out of direct sunlight and give it alot of water? How long will the leaves continue to grow and HOW do I pick them off- by hand with a scissor?

    Beginner here…
    How often should I be watering my lettuce?? I have a couple of containers that I seeded for the first time this year, and I'm not at all green thumbed.
    Any help appreciated ✌🏽🌱

    I am a new Gardner but live in Central Florida. No cool weather here. Only in Jan-April sometimes. I REALLY want to grow my own lettuce. I bought Burpee disc with three different types of lettuce and a seedling soil to plant it with. I bought a pot (12” diameter) and put it outside yesterday. I watered it and this morning I had to move it around so it can get sunlight. I heard it needs 4+ hours of sunlight everyday. Any suggestions would help. Thanks for the video.

    Thank you for the simple yet helpful video. I live in the city in the Midwest and have an urban garden. I'll be planting lettuce in pots for the first time in my life. I grew up in the country, our land was organic. Here in town, people dump everything on the ground, and I can't trust the soil. We currently have a nice garden box, for our small victory garden with a variety of tomatoes and peppers. Looking forward to the cooler weather to try potted lettuce.

    Hi! Nice video. Do I need to have holes in the bottom of the pots for drainage? Thanks!

    Hi Christa! I just planted lettuce for a first time – here in Arizona we have the perfect winters for that 😊 I had no idea I could planted so dense and in a such a shallow pot… Thank you for a great video! I appreciate it 😊😊😊

    Alright ma'am, you mentioned the blood meal for the lettuces. Don't you get a constant supply of homegrown nitrogen nuggets in your yard? Is that a different type of product that doesn't perform as bloodmeal does? Maybe it's not just about the nitrogen? (shrug) Nice video and I will dispute your claim that growing lettuce is easy. 🙂 Odds are I've done it wrong each time I tried. I tried in Fall Winter and Spring with varying degrees of mediocre "success." Same goes for Spinach. Take care up there.

    Christa, great video! It is so, so simple to do lettuce in containers. Just love the ease of walking out the door and harvesting a supper salad. Have a great today! Catherine
