1 packet (20 sweetcorn seeds) (TKA54102)

  • Sow seed, 4cm (11/2in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal containers inside a polythene bag and keep at 18-20°C (64-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Can also be sown outdoors once the soil has warmed, in a sunny position. Sow 2 seeds, 5cm (2in) deep, every 15cm (6in) apart, in rows 45cm (18in) apart. Thin-out to the strongest seedling.
  • Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before planting out after all risk of frost. Keep well watered, feed and mulch during dry periods.
  • Harvest the 'immature' cobs when the silks begin to show above the husks, during September and October.
