Sowing seed outdoors

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Look to ensure a distance 7.8 inches (20.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - bury at a depth of at least 1.17 inches (3.0 cm) deep. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 21°C / 70°F to ensure good germination. You should look at sowing Sweet corn about 14 days after your last frost date .

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Planting out too early will make the plant cold and delay its growth. When the ground has warmed plant out in a block rather than a row, to aid the wind pollenation. Ensure that temperatures are mild (minimum night temperatures should be around 15°C / 59°F) and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Sweet corn is a tender plant.
