PLANTING: After soil has warmed up to 65F ( 70-75F for SH2 & SH2SL ) till soil fine and loose. Enrich with
compost or fertilizer, as corn is a heavy feeder. Direct sow seeds, 1-1.5″ deep, 5-10″ apart on a row spacing
of 30-36″ apart. For best results, plant in blocks of 3-4 rows, instead of 1 long row. Isolate different corn varieties
by a distance of 100-150′ or by maturity. Keep soil moist and weed free. After corn is about a foot tall, we like to
add Bradfield fertilizer at the rate of 5 lbs per 100′ right on row just before tilling or cultivating soil. If you use
a chemical fertilizer, do not put it on row or you may burn plants.
HARVEST: When mature, cut stalks and all to use as a fall decoration shock.
Ears can also be picked and tied in bundles of 3. Leave husk on ears. Pull husk down to end of ear. Tie 3 ears together for fall
decoration. Ears also make excellent squirrel food.
