MORE INFORMATION
Grow your own delicious Sweet Corn with these 'Swift F1' seeds. A very early variety will provide you with sweet and succulent cobs that are rich in fibre and a great source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Quick and easy to grow, the seeds will thrive in a sunny spot in the vegetable patch and produce good-sized cobs (up to 20cm long), that have golden-yellow kernels and a delicious and rich flavour. Sweet corn is at their best soon after they have been picked, but they will keep in the fridge for a few days. Delivered as a pack of approx. 35 seeds. Sow indoors from March - May.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • Planting in blocks helps pollination.
  • Harvest when silks start to turn brown.
  • For best flavour and nutrients, eat sweetcorn as soon as possible after picking before the sugar turns to starch. Don’t add salt to the water if boiling as it will toughen the kernels.
  • Ideal for freezing.

Care Guide

How to grow Sweetcorn

  • Sow indoors, March to May – a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 1.5cm (˝in) deep in pots of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings appear in 7-21 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, when frosts are over. Plant in blocks and allow 40cm (16in) both ways between plants, disturbing roots as little as possible.
  • Or sow outdoors, in May, 1.5cm (˝in) deep, 2 seeds together at 40cm (16in) intervals in block formation. Outdoor sowings may benefit from cloche protection if temperatures drop. Thin to the stronger seedling when large enough to handle.

Harvest:

  • April to September, once the silks begin to turn brown.
  • Note: Xtra-Tender© corn can be grown with Supersweet corns but isolate from Sugary enhanced types as they will go starchy.
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.

We also avoid dispatching orders over Bank Holiday weekends.
