|Latin Name:||Zea mays|
| Sowing/Flowering Info:
Sow under glass March-May, 3-4cm deep in pots or modules of seed compost and water well. Germinates at 18-30°C. Acclimatise seedlings to outdoor conditions, and plant out 60cm apart, once risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, sow directly outside in June once soil is warm enough. Sow 2 seeds together and thin to strongest seedling. Do not grow near other varieties of sweetcorn.
Plants may need staking if growing in an exposed position. Growing in a block means that plants can help to support each other. Protect young plants on cold nights with cloches.
