The most ideal time to plant corn is in the early spring. It is a warm season crop that grows in early-season, mid-season and late-season in a number of varieties. Most people assume that early-season and mid-season is the best time to grow corn despite the late-season, which grows corn with more flavour.

Sweet corn can be grown in a small section in your garden; there are some preparation techniques you can follow to get the best out of your corn. Firstly you will need to use a spade to dig a space of around six in long. Keep in mind that when it reaches early spring you should prepare your soil, and sandy soil is beneficial for growing early-ripening crop. Corn flourishes in a loose and rich soil, although it can also prosper in soil that has been well drained. You should test your soil because the best pH for growth is between 6.0 and 6.5.

Moreover, you will want to test the temperature of the soil because it will affect the growth of your corn. The ideal temperatures should be between 15.5 and 32.2 degrees C (60 and 90 degrees F). You can test this by using a soil thermometer, but you must remember to plant your corn two weeks after the latest frost date in your area.

When you get to the stage to plant your corn you should insert the corn kernels into the soil 1 in deep in heavy soils and 2 in deep in sandy soils. You should place the kernels around 1 ft of space between each other and other plants in your garden. In addition, to ensure that they pollinate you should plant them in four short rows.
