Growing Instructions

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost has passed. For good pollination and full ears, plant in blocks of 3-6 rows instead of one long row. Thin seedlings to 8" apart. Corn is a heavy feeder and does best in well-drained fertile soil with plenty of water.

  • Direct Seed: 4" Apart
  • Germination: 4-21 Days
  • Rows Apart: 36-48"
  • Light: Full Sun

I've never grown broomcorn before, but I wanted to try it out. From about 6 grown stalks, I harvested enough to make a little hand-brush for my coffee machine! Definitely growing this again!
