I plant my sweetcorn plants in a circular shape and because they don't use much soil (they grow upwards), I plant courgettes/ squash/ pumpkins on the soil underneath them. This works really well and protects the plants which favour the soil. This method is known as the 'Three Sisters' Bed', however the third plant is beans (runner/ French) and I grow them separately as I don't think it would work with the beans growing up the sweetcorn plants.
