SWEETCORN WAGTAIL F1 ~ exceptional new variety producing golden coloured, tender, super sweet flavoured kernels
SOW: inside from mid-April to early May in deep pots, or from May to June outside. Push the seeds down 2-3cm and keep moist and warm to help germination. Cloches will keep the soil warmer outside.
GROW: harden off when about 15cm tall and after frost danger has passed. Plant them in a block with the plants and rows about 30-50 cm apart. Sweetcorn is wind pollinated. Wagtail can grow up to 1.8m tall with cobs to 20cm long.
EAT: Cobs are ready when the juice from a kernel is ‘milky’ – depending on the weather from mid-August to October
