GROWERS GUIDE

Sweetcorn

Not too difficult to grow

Sow seed in pots 1.5cm deep. Harden off and transplant 30-45cm apart in block of at least four plants for good wind pollination. Choose fertile soil on a sunny sheltered site.

Water in dry weather aflter flowering starts and cobs swell.

Press thumbnail in a grain after ‘silks’ turn brown - milky juice means it is ripe. Twist cob to remove. Serve quickly as sweetness diminishes.
