Can I plant lettuce in pots? If so how big do they have to be?

This will tell you how big a container for the vegetables you decide to plant. For leaf lettuce you can use 4-6 plants per 1 gal. container.

Wow! Thanks CoCo for the link! I was planning to do some veggie gardening in containers in my apartment this year, and you've helped a great deal just by offering up that link!

Powell Gardens does lettuce in with various flowers in pots all the time. It really looks pretty.

That's a great link CoCo. Gives me new ideas. Here's a variety called 'freckles.' Five plants in an 8" pot, thinned (by eating) often.
