Choose this high quality, super sweet, large cob sweet corn for great performance in the cooler British climate. Grows well in colder areas, producing a super sweet cob on strong, easy to grow, vigorous plants. A mid season variety with a lovely rich colour and flavour.
Indoors: March –May
Sowing Indoors: Sow seeds individually in small pots of moist seed compost 1 cm (1/2 In) Deep. Place in the warmth 15- 18 Deg C (60-65 Deg F). Grow on under cool, light conditions, but not in direct sunlight. Gradually accustom young plants to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions when danger of frost has passed. To ensure good pollination, plant in blocks allowing 45cm (18in) each way between plants.
Sowing Outdoors: Water sowing positions well, then sow two seeds 2cm (1in) deep at stations 45cm (18in) apart each way. Keep soil moist until seedlings are well established. When seedlings are around 8cm (3in) high. Discard the weaker at each station and leave the stronger to develop. Do not transplant weaker seedlings- they do not thrive.
Harvest: August- September, when the silks on the cob turn brown.
Special Note Do not grow other varieties of sweet corn nearby, as they will cross pollinate with this variety. If planting out before the risk of frost has passed, cover with horticultural fleece.
Warning: This seed has been treated with Thiram to aid germination and establishment. Please wash hands after use.
