Growing Your Swift Sweetcorn Seeds

  1. Timing: Plant sweetcorn seeds indoors 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost in your area. This allows seedlings to be ready for transplanting when the weather is suitable.

  2. Seed Starting: Fill seed trays or small pots with a well-draining potting mix. Plant 2-3 seeds per pot, placing them about 1 inch deep. Water well after planting.

  3. Germination: Place the trays or pots in a warm, sunny location. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Germination usually takes 7-10 days.

  4. Seedling Care: Once the seedlings have 2-3 true leaves, thin them to leave only the strongest plant per pot. Provide ample sunlight or use grow lights if growing indoors.

  5. Transplanting: Transplant seedlings when they are about 6 inches tall and the soil has warmed up. Space plants about 12-18 inches apart in rows separated by 2-3 feet.

  6. Soil Preparation: Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil. Work organic matter into the soil and add a balanced fertilizer if needed.

  7. Planting in the Ground: Dig a hole for each seedling, ensuring it is deep enough to accommodate the roots. Place the seedling in the hole and backfill with soil.

  8. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods. 

  9. Fertilising: Side-dress with a balanced fertilizer when the plants are knee-high and again when they start to produce ears.

  10. Harvesting: Harvest sweetcorn when the silk turns brown, and the kernels are plump and release a milky substance when punctured.

Follow these steps, and you should be on your way to enjoying homegrown sweetcorn!
