  1. Good to see some planting dates. Looking to grow sweet corn for showing (Golden Lion), any idea how long it takes from sowing to a mature show cob please? Many thanks.

    1. Hi Edward – sweetcorn aren’t the fastest of growers! We haven’t grown that variety ourselves, but it will be September time before you can harvest if you sow now. Sweetcorn don’t like the frost so be careful not to lose them to that. When a sweetcorn grows it will get a tassel out of the end of the cob. When this starts to go brown and die back, the cob should be ready.
