Sow Plant out Harvest
Where to Sow
|April to May
||May to June
||Late August to September
Early sowings can be made into pots or modules under glass at 21°C. Later sowings can be made direct into growing site, sowing 2 seeds per sowing station. Do not sow as a single row , sow in blocks spacing as detailed 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. Do not plant in rows, but plant in blocks , spacing plants 45cm (18") 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 with a little melted butter.
