Is it too late to plant lettuce (I'm especially interested in iceberg lettuce) in Seattle? Are there any types with enough hardiness to survive if I were to sow the seeds indoors over the next week or so?
Well, here in zone 6 it's much too early to plant lettuce for a fall crop, and too hot for it to germinate.
I bet you could grow romaine well into the winter in Seattle, or even over winter if it's a mild one and under hoops. Iceberg is less tolerant of frost but you have time for that as well.
Romaine lettuce - too late to plant?
Is it too late to plant McCaslan for fall?
Is it too late to plant lettuce, spinach ?
q5 - too late to plant lettuce?
I planted Romaine on July 14th. Its doing great and the spinach too. The Romaine gets sun all day and is only shaded by a wire fence on 1 side. I shade the spinach. Our days are mid 90's and 45-50's at night. No rain. Give it a try to find out. That's what I am doing and I'm glad!
I will bet you can start lettuce every day from today to march and it will work in seattle. why do you think you can not grow lettuce in seattle.
The great grow season for Seattle is just beginning. You are in the only area of USA where you can truely grow spinach starting about now or soon in the future. Winter is the Seattle grow season. Seattle is very different from all other parts of USA.
You need to get connected to local growers to learn all about growing in Seattle.

Wow 90s during the day and 50s during the night is unbelievable...here in on the Del Pa border we just don't get that cold at night
That must be great for sleeping..good luck with the lettuce my two new beds won't germinate for a few weeks. It's just too hot at night.
