Corn, Bantam 12 Row (Zea mays) - 60 Seeds

$1.85 $3.70
Released in 1922 by the Clark Seed Company of Milford, Connecticut. Although developed from the original Golden Bantam, this is definitely an improved type — larger ears mean higher yields, and the golden yellow corn stays tender longer. Equally suitable for freezing and fresh eating, this variety was the standard for home and market gardeners for decades.

Growing Instructions:
Begin by sowing corn seeds directly outdoors once temps have warmed to 60° in soil pH 6 to 6.5. Sow 1-2" deep with 4" between seeds and 30 inches between rows. The general rule of thumb is to grow at least 4 10 foot rows to assist it's pollination by wind. It takes roughly 30 seeds to sow a 10 foot row. When choosing a site in your garden, keep the sun in mind; these tall stalks have potential to block the sunlight from other plants. While growing, the crops will need one to one and a half inches of water per week. Corn is a frost sensitive annual that prefers full sun and is tolerant of a wide variety of soils. Corn is a heavy nitrogen feeder, so planting in beds which previously contained nitrogen-fixing crops such as beans, peas, etc. can give plants a boost.
