When to Plant Heirloom Corn Seed: The most common mistake people make is planting corn seed too early and the seed rots in the cold soil. Heirloom corn is believed to have originated in Mexico. If you are thinking margaritas, palm trees and hot sandy beaches you are on the right track. Heirloom corn hates the cold. There are a few corn varieties that you can put in the soil when its below 65 degrees, but not many. If you want to get a jump start on corn then plant in the greenhouse and transplant corn to the garden later when ALL DANGER OF FROST IS PAST. Do not let these corn transplants get much bigger than 4-6"s or they will not develop properly later. Make sure what you plant your corn seed in has nice deep trays and try not to disturb the roots too much when transplanting your heirloom corn seedlings.
Planting heirloom corn seed: Corn does best on a deep, well-drained soil which has an abundant and uniform supply of water throughout the growing season.
Fertilization: The Indians were dead on planting a fish under every corn plant. Heirloom corn is a greedy feeder and will produce much better with an ample supply of nitrogen. I plant plenty of fava beans in the spring and chop them into the ground a few weeks before I plant corn seed. Fava's put amazing amounts of nitrogen into the ground naturally and without harsh chemicals. I also work in plenty of composted manure and a bit of bone/blood meal. Many folks use alfalfa in the same way as fava beans fro excellent results with corn..
Bulk Heirloom Corn Seed For Sale: You will find many of our heirloom corns in bulk quantities for sale. We have tried hard to locate as many quality heirloom corn varieties as possible. The greatest expense these days is shipping bulk heirloom corn wholesale because of the high fuel prices and the heavy weight of bulk corn quantities.
