Where in the garden should I plant my corn?

Tips for Planting Corn

Corn does best when it is planted where it will receive a full day of sun. When planting, you should make sure the area is away from trees or buildings which could cast a shadow over your garden.

Corn seeds should be planted at least 10 inches apart in a trench. When the vegetable seeds start to sprout and grow, you should hill up the soil around it. This will support the plant as it grows, and it also keeps weed at bay.

You should plant your sweet corn in blocks. It is best to have at least four rows per block as this will help with pollination.
