Growing Calendar for Sweetcorn Lark F1 Hybrid Seeds
Delivery: Mid March to Late August
Enjoy the fantastic taste of this extra tender sweet variety of sweetcorn with kernels that taste practically creamy and buttery even when you eat them straight from the cobs off the plants.
Ready to harvest through mid to late summer this F1 hybrid variety gives you high yields of cobs just in time for the main barbecue season. Choose to steam or eat raw to your suiting.
We recommend that you plant Lark in square formation so that these wind-pollinated plants produce optimal fruit.

Planted seeds as normal Unfortunately none has appeared. Can't understand why as I planted some left over seeds from last year and they are all doing well Your thoughts would be appreciated Thanks
Seeds germinated well. Strong seedlings
I only managed to get 1 seed to germinate out of the 4 or so I initially planted, however, I think this was because I totally over watered and many other seeds in the same batch rotted! So that one survived is probably quite impressive!
