Grow your own popcorn from start to finish. This very-best strain is as easy to grow as ordinary sweetcorn and will teach the kids where it comes from too. All it needs is a warm sunny patch in your garden and it will keep the kids amused all summer long! Simply harvest the cobs when ripe, strip the dry seeds and toss into a pan of hot oil. Don't forget the lid!!
Sow the seeds indoors in seed cells early spring or outdoors in May and early June, one seed per square foot, 1" deep. Transplant the seedlings outside in a block when about 8" tall and all risk of frost has passed in your area. Sweetcorn plants need a rich, well drained soil. Keep watering in hot, dry spells, especially when flowering.
