April to May
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings can be made into pots or modules under glass at 21 degrees C. Later sowings can be made direct into growing site, sowing 2 seeds per sowing station. Sow in blocks as below.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Pot raised seedlings should be gradually hardened off in a cold frame before transplanting into the plot once all risk of frost has passed. Plant in blocks, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart each way to aid pollination by wind.
Cobs are ready to harvest when the end tassels turn brown. Delicious eaten straight from the plant or cooked and served with a little melted butter.
