Growing Instructions:
Begin by sowing corn seeds directly outdoors once temps have warmed to 60° in soil pH 6 to 6.5. Sow 1-2" deep with 4" between seeds and 30 inches between rows. The general rule of thumb is to grow at least 4 10 foot rows to assist it's pollination by wind. It takes roughly 30 seeds to sow a 10 foot row. When choosing a site in your garden, keep the sun in mind; these tall stalks have potential to block the sunlight from other plants. While growing, the crops will need one to one and a half inches of water per week. Corn is a frost sensitive annual that prefers full sun and is tolerant of a wide variety of soils. Corn is a heavy nitrogen feeder, so planting in beds which previously contained nitrogen-fixing crops such as beans, peas, etc. can give plants a boost.
