How to germinate Merlot lettuce seeds:

Thinly sow and barely cover; tamp firm & mist. Greater success with clear cover. Gentle bottom heat (15C) promotes germination. Days to germ: 5-10. Grow at 10C in fertile soil. Liquid kelp for the best salad greens. Heat & intense sun is lettuce’s enemy so its best to grow in a cool shady site in summer’s intense heat or suffer bitter greens.
