  • For best flavour and nutrients, eat sweetcorn as soon as possible after picking before the sugar turns to starch. Donít add salt to the water if boiling as it will toughen the kernels.
  • Ideal for freezing.

Care Guide

How to grow climbing Sweetcorn

  • Sweetcorn is wind pollinated so it should be planted in blocks, 40cm (16in) apart to maximise pollination. You can help this process by collecting pollen from the tassels at the top of the plants and sprinkling it onto the hairy tufts of silk on the ears. The best pollen is shed in late morning.
  • Good pollination will result in cobs packed full of kernels.
  • Sweetcorn develops quickly once pollinated, ready to pick just a couple of weeks after pollination, when the silks have turned brown in August.
DELIVERY INFORMATION

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them. Although most plants are extremely tough and will not be affected by all but the most extreme of weather conditions, we always avoid dispatching the most perishable plants if extreme frosts or heat is forecast. We also avoid dispatching orders over Bank Holiday weekends.

We send most of our orders via a fully tracked courier service with Yodel. We will send you a tracking link as soon as your order has been dispatched.
