How to Plant Corn in Your Garden


This article will tell you how to plant corn in your garden for best results.

Things You'll Need

  • corn seeds
  • garden hoe
  • water
  • First, take the garden hoe to one side of the garden and begin digging a shallow trench. You only need to dig the trench about 3 or 4 inches deep. Dig the trench the length of the garden.

  • After you have dug the trench, take a water hose or bucket of water and fill the trench with water. Allow the soil to absorb the water.

  • Once the soil has absorbed the water, take the seeds and sprinkle them in a line down the length of the trench.

  • Then take the garden hoe and go back over the trench, covering the seeds with the dirt from the trench that you dug.

  • To plant multiple rows of corn, allow 2 to 3 feet between rows and repeat the process above. After you have planted the seeds, you should see some sprouts in about 2 weeks or so.
