Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Sweetcorn 'Lark' is a midseason tendersweet variety giving superior sweetness with a softer, less chewy texture than conventional supersweets. The large cobs, packed with golden, thin-skinned kernels, are delicious picked fresh from the garden and boiled, steamed or barbecued. Many varieties of Sweetcorn need to be grown in isolation. This variety has the benefit of being able to be grown alongside other varieties. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Please note: Delivery is subject to plant size, adverse growing conditions during production may delay despatch schedules.

Flowering Months Harvest Months
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.
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.
