How you will receive your Plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your Garden Ready plug Plants in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your Plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your Plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your Plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your Plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground:  Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant, if your soil is heavy mix in general-purpose compost, horticultural sand and stone or potting grit to ensure good drainage. Incorporate plenty of garden compost or well-rotted farmyard manure and rake in a high potassium fertiliser before planting. Gently compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly. Plant sweetcorn Seedlings in blocks rather than in rows, to encourage wind pollination.

Feeding and aftercare: Water regularly, especially in dry periods, and weed carefully around the base, taking care not to damage the roots.

*Planting and flowering months below are subject to seasonal weather conditions.
