The growing period of iceberg lettuce is two weeks longer than the other lettuce varieties. For an iceberg lettuce, Blonde de Paris has a short growing period and it is therefore important to transplant early. If you would like to eat lettuce each week, you have to sow/plant regularly. When you put a part of the lettuce close to each other and if you harvest a little earlier than normal, you could suffice with one sowing per three to four weeks.
