    Four eight foot rows of Seneca Arrowhead Hybrid sweet corn was planted.Spacing was one foot at a depth of one inch.Rows are about two feet apart. The broccoli plants in the chosen area were removed and the bed prepared for the corn by adding compost and rototilling into the underlying soil.The corn seed was spouted between two wet paper towels for 48 hours. Annotated pictures depict the process.

    I was having trouble with critters digging up the corn seed when direct sown.One year we decided to start them in pots in the GH and planted the plants out when they were 4-5 inches tall worked great and our corn was harvested earlier.

    I found my critters were birds. The small birds like the tender leaves when the plant first germinates. Throwing a fibre glass screen over the plant is one cure. I noticed only one or two plants had the leaves cropped a little his year. Last year was a misery, about half were damaged.

    If you want to planting corn then you have require best soil with good seeds and also enough nitrogen and moisture. You also have good garden soils may need some plant food to produce a best-quality fruits. Corn seed will not grow in colder soils so always select related soil for growing corn.
