Corn Growing Guide
Garden corn can be knocked over in high wind areas. For best pollination grow corn in short rows, making a square formation instead of one long line of corn.
When to Plant:
Direct sow when soil temperature has reached 65°F and after all danger of frost has passed. Corn can be transplanted if necessary. Start 3-4 weeks before optimal planting date.
To avoid cross pollination plant varieties at least 500 feet apart or plant at different times to ensure tasseling at different times.
