In its own way, sweet corn is a striking plant, almost architectural in appearance. Always planted in numbers as its wind-pollinated, a group of sweet corn is quite a sight. However, its the wonderful taste of the cob we are after and Suttons plethora of sweet corn seed varieties for you to try.

‘Sundance’ is golden yellow and full of taste. How about something a bit unusual, white sweet corn cob ‘Maria white’. In recent years baby sweet corn has gained huge popularity, if it's a favourite of yours, try ‘Mini pop’.

How Long Does Sweet Corn Take To Grow From Seed?

Your sweet corn seeds should germinate within 10 to 12 days, and the corn on the cob ready to harvest within 14 to 16 weeks.

Harvesting Sweet Corn

When it comes to harvesting corn on the cob, look to when leaves around the cob turn brown. Twist sharply for a clean break. The quicker you eat your cob the fuller of flavour it will be as, so try and pick them as you need them. 

For some fun how about making a mini sweet corn maze by planting them in a pattern. They will grow in a pot, plant three together and underplant with some colourful bedding like Petunias. For something a bit different why not barbeque sweet corn for a treat
