Sweet Corn - Bodacious RM F1
This is a naturally 'sugar enhanced' variety with large, fast maturing cobs that are crammed with juicy, very sweet kernels. It is very tolerant of rust which is especially helpful in wet summers to provide good quality, healthy crops.
CAUTION: Sugar enhanced' corn should be isolated from 'Super Sweet,' otherwise quality will be impaired. Not genetically modified.
Sow indoors from March to May. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 1.5cm deep, in pots of compost. Keep warm and moist. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, before planting out, from May to June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil, when frosts are over. Plant in blocks and allow 40cm, both ways, between plants, disturbing roots as little as possible. Or, sow outdoors, during May, 1.5cm deep, two seeds together at 40cm intervals in block formation. Sowings may benefit from cloche protection if temperatures drop. Thin to the stronger seedling when large enough to handle. Harvest from August to September.
