Product details

How

Sow direct where they are to grow when soil is warm. Sow seeds in pairs in damp soil. No further watering is needed until seedlings appear. Thin out the weaker of each pair when approximately 15cm high.

Care

Plant in a well drained, sunny position. Prepare soil by adding Yates Blood & Bone. Water and liquid fertilise regularly with Thrive Soluble Plant Food (particularly in early stages of growth). Pick cobs when fine 'silk' has just browned. Use Yates Success to control Corn Earworm caterpillar. Protect seedlings from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, cucumber, parsnip, potatoes, pumpkin, radish, zucchini and squash. Sweet Corn is best grown in blocks of short rows, which ensures better pollination and yield.

 

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
