Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors: a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 1.5cm(½in) deep in pots of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15-20°C(60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings appear in 7-21 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, when frosts are over. Plant in blocks and allow 40cm(16in) both ways, between plants, disturbing roots as little as possible.

Sow outdoors 1.5cm(½in) deep, two seeds together at 40cm(16in) intervals in block formation. Outdoor sowings may benefit from cloche protection if temperatures drop. Thin to the stronger seedling when large enough to handle.

Hint's & Tips

Planting in blocks helps pollination, harvest when silks start to turn brown. Eat sweet corn as soon as possible after picking before sugar turns to starch.
