Can be grown in....
Sweetcorn need a little space and are best grown in raised beds or an allotment.
How far apart?
The key to growing sweetcorn is to plant them in blocks rather than rows – this allows for better cross-pollination, which means you’re more likely to get a good crop (if they don’t get pollinated, the kernels won’t swell). Allow 35-45cm between plants in 3×3 formation (or 4×4 etc)
