Growing Sweetcorn

Posted: 29/05/2012 at 16:03

Thanks to you both. I'll keep one block inside and place the others outside.

Has anyone out there in Central Scotland grown sweetcorn outside successfully?

I haven't seen any sweetcorn near here but believe some farmers grow it in the Borders (further south) for silage only (presumably as they don't harvest well, but I don't really know). No information on the variety on the packet supplied by 'Beautiful Garden' I'm afraid.

I have loads of space to position them outside (various sunny walls and along the outside of the greenhouse, slightly exposed to the wind though) but assumed it would be too cold to grow them successfully outside in Scotland.

They are in groups of 3 in 40cm diameter plastic pots. To be honest I didn't expect all the seeds to germinate - If I'd known I would only have planted 3 or 4. The greenhouse is 9ft x 11ft.

I'm a beginner and decided to sow sweetcorn to grow in my newly acquired greenhouse (having just moved house). All 13 plants are growing very well and are now over a foot high, after potting on. However as I live in central Scotland I was intending to grow these in the greenhouse but I understand they need the wind to pollinate the group. Could I leave them in the greenhouse with the door open or do I need to move them outside to pollinate? Or would using a brush work instead?
