1 Packet (30 Sweetcorn Seeds) (TT00835)
Once the silks or tassels start to form on the cobs regular watering is helpful. To check that the cobs are ready to be picked pull back part of leaves covering them and squeeze one of the grains, if the liquid is thin and creamy, not watery, the cob is ready. Don't grow next to standard varieties or Butterscotch may lose some of its sweetness.
Plant out 45cm (18in) apart when all danger of frost has passed, in blocks of short rows rather than one long row to ensure adequate cross pollination. A warm, sunny sheltered position in fertile, moist yet free draining soil is best.

Best of three 2016-06-10
2016 North Yorkshire Grew Ovation, Conqueror and Lark. Started off in pots in the greenhouse and planted out late May with fleece ready if frost was forecast but it wasn't required. Germination was good, the flavour and size of the cobs excellent. Conqueror was the best for flavour and size. Will buy again.

I am growing this as a first this year for a second crop of sweetcorn to my early as I wanted to extend the cropping season. It has overtaken my summer variety in height already and the cobs look thicker and longer. It is still a little early to harvest but they look promising. I will now grow an early and late harvesting variety year on year if these taste as good as they look
