T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them outdoors.

Grow sweetcorn plants in a sheltered position in full sun, on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil that has been deeply dug. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Sweetcorn is wind pollinated and should grown in large blocks to assist pollination. Plant sweetcorn at a distance of 35cm (14") apart, leaving 60cm (24") between each row, to form a large block. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.

Feed and water sweetcorn regularly, particularly once the flowers have developed. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. When the silky tassels at the end of each kernel turn brown, peel back the cobs and insert a thumbnail into a kernel. The cobs can be harvested when the juice is a milky colour.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

  1. Doing well despite a weekend in the sorting office!

    By Julian Kay 20-06-2011

    Unfortunately this delivery arrived at some time on a Saturday morning via Royal Mail. Like many people we were out enjoying our precious weekend. Scheduling deliveries for Saturdays seems a little careless as plants don't do well when kept in a sorting office for two days. Thankfully 7 of the 10 plants were still alive and are now doing well after some emergency TLC!
