I grow Sweetcorn 'Sweet Nugget' – an excellent tried-and-tested, mid-season 'super sweet' variety with a good yield of long, uniform cobs.

It's also a very ornamental plant, which looks good with tall, luscious, grass-like leaves, in any part of the garden.

Direct sow Cobra beans at the base of your sweetcorn plants and you will double your production from the same space.

Genus Zea mays
Variety Sweet Nugget

Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Site Full Sun, Shelter
Moisture Well-drained
Height 200cm (6.5 feet)
Spacing 35cm (14in) between plants
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow in April under cover in single modules as they do not like root disturbance. Direct sow in May. Plant out after last frosts (late May) in blocks, not rows, as this helps pollination and kernal formation.
Care Tips Water during hot, dry spells.
Storing Eat as quickly as possible after picking for best sweetness.
Harvesting July - October. Pick when whiskers poking out of the end of the cobs turn brown.
Cooking Notes Cook for 10 minutes in boiling water. Try Sarah's recipe for Barbecued corn with chilli and garlic butter.

Not for my garden

Reviewed 23rd July 2017 by Carmen Neumann

Sadly these were the only seeds out of my Sarah Raven order that did not work for me. Hardly any germination. I bought a second batch of seeds locally afterwards, with the same result so I think it may be more my technique/roottrainers/compost that was at fault here.
