description for "Lettuce: Lactuca Sativa, 'Sandrina'"

Lactuca Sativa 'Sandrina' is a good choice for fall planting. This medium-sized butterhead will head quickly in the cooler weather. 'Sandrina' germinates well in cool soil and has more cold tolerance than other butter types. Flavorful, yellow-green leaves. Sow 2 seeds per inch directly into soil as soon as it begins to warm, 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Enrich soil well with mature compost. Harvesting tips. Thin plants when they have 4 true leaves. Harvest outer leaves from young lettuce plants. Planting depth: .25 inch. Days to germination: 3-14 days. 55-65 days to maturity.
