WHEN TO PLANT CORN

Plant seeds outdoors approximately two weeks after the last spring frost date. Consult our Planting Calendar (above) to see suggested planting dates for your region.
It’s important to get corn planted as soon as possible, since it requires a fairly long growing period with warm weather. If you live in an area with a shorter growing season, choose an early variety that will mature well before the first fall frost.
Make sure the soil temperature is above 60°F (16°C) for successful germination. (Up to 65°F/18°C for super sweet varieties.) In colder zones, the ground can be warmed by a black plastic cover, if necessary. Plant seeds through holes in the plastic.
A couple weeks after planting your first round of corn, plant another crop to extend the harvest.

CHOOSING AND PREPARING A PLANTING SITE

Corn plants are picky about their soil. Work in aged manure or compost the fall before planting and let it overwinter in the soil.
The soil should be well-draining, but must be able to hold some moisture. Corn tends to use a lot of water.
For sufficient pollination, plan your plot right. Instead of planting two long rows of corn, plant “blocks” of corn at least four rows deep. This ensures that the corn—which is pollinated by wind—has a greater chance of producing viable ears.

HOW TO PLANT CORN

Starting corn seeds indoors is not recommended. It’s best to start them directly in the garden so that their roots aren’t disturbed due to transplanting.
Plant seeds 1.5 to 2 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart.
Rows should be spaced 30 to 36 inches apart.
You may choose to fertilize at planting time; corn is meant to grow rapidly. If you are confident that the soil is adequate, this can be skipped.
Water well at planting time.
