WHY CONTAINERS GOOD FOR GROWING LETTUCE
Head lettuce can be grown in a container, especially if it is a fairly large container, but it is the least popular variety for smaller containers such as plant pots.
WHAT TYPE OF LETTUCE SHOULD YOU GROW IN A CONTAINER?
Leaf lettuce can be harvested multiple times. If you harvest the outer leaves continuously, you can easily harvest three or four times from a plant.
If you would like to get a head start in growing your own lettuce, you can purchase a tray of lettuce seedlings that are an inch or two in height.
