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 inchdeep.

SPACING: Sow seeds 4 to 6 inches apart. Space between 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 the 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.
