Guide in planting sweetcorn
- Choose the right location: Sweetcorn needs full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day) and well-drained soil. It is also a heavy feeder, so the soil should be rich in organic matter.
- Prepare the soil: Before planting, amend the soil with compost or manure. This will help to improve the drainage and fertility of the soil.
- Sow the seeds: Sweetcorn seeds can be sown directly in the ground or started indoors. If you are sowing them directly in the ground, sow them 1 inch deep and 12 inches apart. If you are starting them indoors, sow them 2-3 weeks before the last frost date.
- Thin the seedlings: Once the seedlings have emerged, thin them to 8-12 inches apart.
- Water regularly: Sweetcorn needs to be watered regularly, especially during the hot summer months.
- Fertilize regularly: Sweetcorn is a heavy feeder, so it will need to be fertilized regularly. You can use a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, every 2-3 weeks.
- Protect from pests and diseases: Sweetcorn is susceptible to several pests and diseases, such as corn borers, earworms, and powdery mildew. You can prevent these pests and diseases by planting resistant varieties and by practicing good garden sanitation.
- Harvest when the cobs are ripe: Sweetcorn is ready to harvest when the kernels are plump and milky. You can test the corn by gently pressing a kernel with your thumbnail. If the juice that comes out is milky, the corn is ripe.
- Plant several short rows of corn instead of one long row. This will help to improve pollination.
- Mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
- Stake the plants if they are tall and top-heavy. This will help to prevent them from toppling over in strong winds.
