Heirloom lettuce varieties, such as Allstar Gourmet Mix, Flashy Troutback (romaine) and May Queen (butterhead), look stunning in wreath form. Lettuce loves to grow in cooler temperatures and will do poorly in hot climates. This living lettuce wreath is ideal to plant in the cooler spring months and once again in the fall.
DIY living wreath: Lettuce
Lettuce wreaths prefer morning sun, afternoon shade and moist soil. To water, submerge them in cool water for two to three minutes two to three times a week. You can also give the wreaths a long and gentle soak with water from a garden hose. Once the lettuces have stopped producing, gently pull out the spent plants and discard. You can replant this cool weather plant in the same holes once cooler weather has arrived.
