When to sow: April – May
Spacing: 40 x 40cm
Sweetcorn tips: Sow indoors in pots or large modules from April. Sow two seeds in each pot and remove the less vigorous one. Plant out at final spacing after the last frost, mid-May as a rule of thumb.
Alternatively direct sow in May in final growing position; place 2-3 seeds in pre-dibbed 3cm deep holes at the required spacing and thin to one plant per station.
Early crops benefit from fleece to protect them from cold.
