why are my lettuce leaves tough



Hello John, I cannot see your flag, do not know which country you're growing in, but I never had much luck with lettuces. They love soft, loose soil, which I hardly had. Leaves should be soft when you have mignonettes and crisp when you have iceberg or cos lettuce. I have no idea about fertiliser or soil types suitable for lettuce. Sorry I cannot help, thought I better answer, as nobody did so far.
