Special Directions For Short Season Climates
SOWING: Plant in full sun outdoors in late spring when soil and weather have warmed and all danger of frost and cool weather has passed. Sow seeds 1 inch deep.
SPACING: Sow seeds 4 to 6 inches apart. Space rows 2 to 3 feet apart depending upon available space.
THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: When established seedlings are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin or transplant them 8 to 12 inches apart.
GERMINATION: Usually 7 to 10 days. Keep seedbed moderately moist during germination.
Ed's Special Advice
To conserve space and for best pollination, plant in blocks made up of short rows, thinned to 8 to 12 inches apart in all directions. Fertilize and cultivate soil prior to planting. To preserve best flavor and tenderness, pick corn just a few minutes before use. Sweet corn benefits from rich soil, side dress with fertilizer just before tassels appear and water deeply.
