Soil pH Level 5.5–7.0


Position Full sun, with protection from wind. Remember that corn is a large plant that casts a long shadow, so position accordingly.


How to Plant Best grown in an in-ground veggie patch. Sow the seeds directly into the patch when the soil temperature is above 20 degrees and make sure to mulch around the plants once they are established. Feed with fish fertilizer monthly.
