Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Sow Hybrid Silver Queen Sweet Corn seeds directly in the garden after all danger of frost is past and soil is warm. Plant 1 seed every 4". Thin to 1 plant every 12" when plants are 4" tall. Control weeds with a mulch and keep plants well watered, especially when tops begin to tassel.

Planting Depth: 1 - 1.5"

Seed Spacing: Sow Hybrid Silver Queen Sweet Corn seeds roughly 12" apart, keeping rows approximately 3' apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

For better ear fill, plant a number of short rows together instead of a single long row. This helps ensure pollination. For plenty of corn all season, plant early and late varieties.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
