Paris Island Cos lettuce is a popular and unique variety that, much like other lettuce types is fairly easy to grow. Paris Island Cost lettuce is a perfect addition to salads, and is great for any type of sandwiches. The leaves of Paris Island Cos lettuce are tender, crisp and thick with a slight sweet flavor, although everyone's taste buds vary. Growth is vigorous for Paris Island Cos lettuce with heads growing upright to nearly ten inches.

When and Where to Plant Your Paris Island Cos Lettuce Seeds

Paris Island Cos lettuce is a cool weather crop, so you can start them a bit earlier than many other vegetable varieties. There is a great book by our good friend Niki Jabbour, titled The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener: How to Grow Your Own Food 365 Days a Year, No Matter Where You Live, which explains a lot of great techniques for growing in colder climates. Paris Island Cos grows well in partial sun but will grow much better in full sun, so select a sunny location if possible. Plant your Paris Island Cos lettuce seeds as soon as you can work your soil, and sow the seeds sparingly. A few seeds go a long way.

How to Care for Your Paris Island Cos Lettuce Plants

Paris Island Cos lettuce grows best when the soil is moist and weed free. There are a number of methods you can use to keep your garden weed free such as thick mulches, laying down a weed barrier first such as newspaper, and so much more. I'd recommend you check out the book Weedless Gardening by Dr. Lee Reich. He is the premier expert in keeping your garden weeds to a minimum. Feed your Paris Island Cos lettuce plants every four to five weeks with a good organic fertilizer.

How to Harvest Your Paris Island Cos Lettuce

This is the fun part and the reason why a few Paris Island Cos lettuce seeds go a long way. Pick only what you want to consume and leave the Paris Island Cos lettuce plant in tact. It will continue to grow more lettuce throughout the season, so as long as you care for the plant properly (see care instructions above). I like to snip off the Paris Island Cos lettuce leaves with a good pair of garden scissors. This tends to do less damage to the plant then simply ripping them off.
