While corn is a heat loving plant that grows easily from seed, the seeds won’t germinate until the soil is warm.
Kernels will only grow when there is enough pollination between plants; this is why it is important to grow corn in blocks rather than single rows.
Corn is ready to harvest when the silk or ‘hair’ on top of the corn is brown and shrivelled and the fluid inside the kernel is milky. If it’s still clear, the corn isn’t ready.
