Bolted lettuce? Collect the seeds! This video will show you how to identify when lettuce has “bolted” or gone to seed, and when to harvest the seeds.

Note: Collecting seeds from hybrid plants will produce one of the parent plants. Collecting heritage seeds will ensure future plants will be the same species as the parent.
