Sowing

Sow sweetcorn seeds from April to May in 7cm (3") pots of free draining seed compost at a depth of 2cm (¾"). Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at temperature of 18-24C (64-75F) until after germination which takes 7-10 days. After germination, grow sweetcorn plants on in cooler conditions for 10 - 14 days. When all risk of frost is passed, transplant into fertile, well drained soil in full sun, with shelter from winds. The tassels at the top of the plant and laden with pollen and are wind pollinated and should therefore be planted in blocks rather than rows to ensure good pollination. Plant 45cm (18") between each plant.

Alternatively direct sow sweetcorn seeds outdoors in May once the soil has warmed, at a depth of 2cm (3/4") and a distance of 35cm (14") apart. Sow 2 seeds per station and thin out the weakest seedling per station after germination.

More Info
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.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
