Sweet corn seeds can easily be sown during the late summer or early fall. Sowing must be done a week or two after planting. Choose a good container with ample depth and width as per available space. Fill your container loosely with chosen growing medium and proper potting mix. Optimal sowing medium for growing sweet corn seeds is organic garden soil or compost and a blend of coconut coir and vermicompost.
Sweet corn seeds should be planted in an area that receives morning sun. Keep them away from overhanging trees or fences. After approximately a week, your sprouts may not sprout. You can try to water them but frequent watering will increase water loss through transpiration and composting. Continue monitoring their development until they are ready to harvest.
When you see your plant coming out of the ground, take it to the place where you plan to plant it, in a hole that is slightly larger than the root system. If you are going to use raised bedding, make sure that your sweetcorn seeds are securely planted on a firm foundation. This will ensure that they grow at their maximum. If you are not sure about the proper planting site, ask for advice from a local nursery. You can also seek advice from your neighbors or other gardeners.
There are many different varieties of plants that are grown for providing dessert fruits.

In order to plant your seeds, soft loamy soil that drains well should be used. On average, it takes about a week for your plants to germinate. If you plan to water them before this time, you will be required to wait until the sown seed has sprouted fully. Once your sweetcorn seeds have sprouted, they will require daily watering.
If you do not plan to water your plants, it is advisable to place a weight inside them during the first three days after sowing. This will help them to settle into a good location for germination. Watering your plants at this time will also help keep them healthy and prevent diseases. When watering your sweet corn seeds, it is important to do so deeply enough that you don't saturate the soil.
A good soil to plant your sweet corn seeds is one that contains about one inch of water per pound of plant. This will ensure that your plants get enough moisture without over-watering. It's also a good idea to make an allowance for drainage, as well as an allowance for plant roots to spread out a bit. A word of warning here - don't be too generous with the watering. Your plant needs to have an adequate amount of moisture to allow for healthy growth.
