Plant Little Caesar early in Spring or in the Fall because it grows best in cool weather.
Idea & Tips: The key to lettuce production is supplying moderate, but almost constant water—especially during hot weather.
Unless there is regular rainfall, lettuce must be watered deeply at least once a week, and more frequently during periods of drought.
Use a thin layer of mulch to help the soil retain moisture.
Watch for lettuce rot, which first attacks the lower leaves in contact with the soil and then spreads throughout the plant.
