Corn

All you need to know about growing corn in your garden

• Annual
• All zones
• Full sun--always
• Ample, deep water

Most kinds of corn do best in hot-summer areas, but early-maturing hybrid varieties will grow even in regions with cool summers. You must plant corn in a series of parallel rows so that wind can distribute the pollen effectively. Sow seeds directly in the garden, spacing them 4 to 6 inches apart in rows 2 1/2 to 3 feet apart. Thin seedlings to 1 to 1 1/2 feet apart. Harvest 60 to 100 days after sowing.
