  • Companion Planting: Dill is believed to offer defence against aphids and mites. Beans can supply additional nitrogen to the corn. Sunflowers can serve as both a framework and a barrier against wind for the corn, and smaller varieties of sunflowers attract ladybugs that help control aphids. Pole beans are occasionally planted alongside corn to contribute nitrogen and provide structural support. Spinach thrives in the shade of corn, helping to keep the corn roots cool.
  • Preparation Ideas: Perfect for eating right off the cob or freezing.
Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Sow seed directly in soil once all danger of frost has passed. Separate from other varieties by 7.5 m (25'') to avoid cross pollination and to maintain its unique characteristics. Planting in a block instead of a long single row will help in pollination.
  • Planting Depth: 5 cm (2")
  • Seed Spacing: 10 cm (4")
  • Plant Spacing: 30 cm (12")

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
  • Corn is ready to harvest approximately 20 days after silk first appears on cobs. The silk turns brown and the husk will be green. Remove cobs from stalks just before eating. Remove husks and silk from corn ears. Mineral oil on the silk deters bugs.
