Possible to start lettuce in 5-1-1 mix?
I'm getting a late start (at least I think for 7b) for sowing lettuce and wondered if I can sow lettuce seeds in a 5-1-1 mix or if I need to start lettuce in a seed starting mix and then transplant to a larger container.
Also, can I grow lettuce varieties that are supposed to be slow bolting in the late spring and summer as long as I provide some shade during the hottest parts of the day? High today is supposed to be 74 degrees with a low of 56.
Thanks for your help.
