story: a successful variety of sweetcorn in an otherwise challenging year, stowell's evergreen has large cobs, with good pollination, and tastes lovely. omved’s holistic gardener, vicky, is very proud. 

sow: sow indoors from mid-april to early may in modules or deep pots. sow directly outdoors when temperatures are regularly over 10 degrees.

requirements: really rich soil, regular feeding and watering. 

harvesting: test for ripeness when the tassels have turned chocolate brown. peel back a bit to see if kernels are formed, then pick and eat. 

 

please remember, we will only send out three packs of seed to growers. if you order more than this, you will receive just three packs. this is to ensure we get plenty of data in return, and to keep our stocks sustainable for years to come.
