Plant Your (Sweet) Corn

In America it's just corn, in Britain we have to call it sweet corn. But if you like homegrown cobs - they're so much better - this is the time to be planting. You might have grown your own seedlings in which case they should be completely hardened off before you plant them out. Otherwise you can buy young plants. Choose a site with the maximum warmth and sun and make sure the soil is well prepared with some organic food. You should set out the plants 30-40 cms apart. Plant in a block of short rows rather than one or two long rows, this encourages better pollination.
