Size guide - Pack of 5 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

This is a tender crop so don’t be tempted to plant them outside if frost is still forecast in your area.  Pot on in individual pots and gradually harden off to outside temperatures.

  • Once planted, young sweetcorn leaves can be munched on by slugs and snails so keep a lookout.
  • Keep weeds at bay too whilst the plants are young.
  • Sweetcorn may well need support if grown in exposed windy sites as they grow in height to around 2metres.  But in most gardens or containers, supports will not be needed.
  • Water well throughout the growing season to help with the production of plump and flavoursome cobs and juicy kernels.
  • A good indication Cobs are ready to pick is when the tassels that come out of the top of the cob turn brown.
