Sweet Corn

Sweet Corn
Picking and cooking sweet corn straight from your garden is one of the finest experiences of growing your own. Sow in April time and plant out in blocks not rows after the frosts. Cobs are ready in August-September when juice from a kernel is ‘milky’. A note for supersweet corns: you grow one of these in a garden as they like to cross pollinate – if you want more than one supersweet then keep them apart!
