My first time attempting to plant corn. Starting them from seedlings, and planning on transplanting them into raised beds.
My first learning: Corn grows FAST! lol
I had only planned on planting about 8 corn plants. From reading a few posts, I understand that I should be planting many more. My big concern is the spacing inside the raised bed. I have not built the raised yet, but I had planned on building a 2'x8' (2"x10" boards) raised bed solely for the corn, and a few bean plants surrounding it to fill a few spaces.
From reading posts, I may have to re think this plan. I was also going to plant them close to the fence, but I have read not to do that either.
If I re-sized the raised bed to a 4'x4' (2" x 10" boards), how should I space the plants? And should I stagger the transplants in the rows? I've read too much conflicting opinion and advice on how to space corn. I figured, because they are so large, they should have more space between each other..... apparently corn is the exception...lol!
Thanks in advance!
