Delicious super sweet variety
Ideal for difficult
A supersweet, mid season variety, producing an attractive mix of yellow and white grains on the same cob. Sweetcorn 'Summer Glow' performs well in difficult, cool locations, producing plenty of 20cm (8") long cobs. The cobs are deliciously sweet and tender – perfect for barbecueing, steaming and boiling.
Sow April to May. Sow seed 4cm (1.5in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free draining seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed, sow 2 seeds, 5cm (2in) deep, 23cm (9in) apart, and in rows about 45cm (18in) apart. Thin out to the strongest seedling.
Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed.
