  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Although you can skip this step, your seeds will come up much faster if you soak them overnight before sowing. Plant them directly in the place they're to grow, spacing them 20 cm apart.

    How to Harvest

    When the silks have turned brown and wilted, it's time to start picking, but don't pick more than you will eat on the day. That way, you get the sweetest flavour. Cut your cobs or pull down, twist, and then pull towards you.
