On Receipt - Remove the plants from the packaging immediately upon receipt. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. All the vegetable plants can be planted immediately into a moist soil in the garden, provided conditions are suitable. Once planted water well to settle the soil around the plants. Soil Preparation - Vegetable plants require a well drained soil in a sunny position that has ideally been dug in the autumn. Prior to planting lightly fork over the area removing any weeds that have grown, and break down any large lumps. Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore and rake into the surface. During the growing period keep the plants well watered in dry spells and keep weeds under control. SWEET CORN - The plugs contain one or two young plants which should not be separated. Sweet Corn is wind pollinated and to ensure good pollination plant in blocks rather than rows. Space the plants 35cm (14") apart in each direction, plant so that the top of the plug is 2.5cm (1") below the soil surface. The roots of sweet corn will grow close to the surface, therefore do not hoe around the plants remove weeds by hand. The plants should be kept well watered especially when the cobs start to swell. The cobs are ready to harvest when the silk tassels on the end of the cob turn brown and a milky juice comes out of a fully developed grain when pressed with your thumbnail.
