Growing Vegetables in Containers

Not everyone has a large garden, an allotment, a vegetable plot to grow vegetables.

That doesn’t mean you can’t still grow a few home-grown, fresh vegetables when you want them. If you have room for a pot, grow bag, or even a window box.of any size then there is nothing to stop you from having a go at growing your own.

Sweetcorn Minipop is the standard variety used for babycorn. It has a very tender pericarp which makes this an ideal variety for mini sweet corn. Best grown at high density, and harvested when cobs approximately 10cm in length.

Each plant produces 5-6 cobs per plant. This variety normally crops after approximately 65 days, and does not require pollination to produce cobs.

However do not grow near normal sweetcorn as cross-pollination can reduce the size of the normal sweetcorn if you are growing it.

Response:

Hello, thank you for review. As stated above in the description minipop is a baby sweet corn variety - not one that should be grown for bigger cobs. Please try one of the other varieties for that.
