Lettuce heads form best when the weather is cooler. If your area is experiencing unusually warm weather, this can delay or even prevent head formation. You can help to reduce the stress on the plant and encourage head formation by keeping the roots cool. Mulching the roots and regular watering will help and you can also try setting up a sun shade with an opaque piece of cloth. This will allow the light to get through but will keep some of the warmer rays of sun from heating the plants too much.
