Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Generally disease free, but can be affected by slugs or earwigs. Slug damage to young sweetcorn leaves can look a little different to normal – they don’t like the ribs in the leaves so tend to eat strips between the ribs, shredding the leaves. Set slug traps and keep your plot as tidy from weeds and other slug-friendly hiding places as possible. Earwigs are sometimes found in sweetcorn cobs, as they like to bury under the leaves on the husks. To keep them away, a few rolled up newspapers, dampened, and left lying on the soil can work. Empty out the newspaper roll from time to time at the other end of the garden.

Water regularly

Water well for the first week or so while the sweetcorn plants are getting established. Thereafter they’ll need watering during dry spells.

Full sun

Sweetcorn plants need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day. Best grown in a sheltered position to protect against cold, chilling winds.

Fertile, well-draining soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.

No feeding needed

Sweetcorn don't need regular feeding, but it is a good idea to dig in plenty of nutrient rich compost when planting. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300929
