SOWING
After danger of frost, direct seed corn every foot in two rows/bed .5-1″ deep. Rows should be at least 18″ apart. Plant flour corn early as it requires the full season to mature. Corn pollinates best if grown in blocks. A little extra spacing between plants does not hurt as this allows good air flow through the plants as the kernels mature.
This variety also does well started in trays indoors and transplanted outside. Sow in trays (98-128 cells work well) 2-3 weeks before last frost date. Transplant outside after danger of frost is over.
