How Many Corn Seeds?

YanksFan7May 16, 2014

How many corn seeds ( Peaches and Cream Hybrid Sweet ) can I put in a pot (I have about 4) with about a foot in radius?

On a side note, can anyone give me some info about hand pollination with corn?

When I used to grow sweet corn, I planted it in "hills", three or four seeds to a hill. I would consider your container a hill. Hand pollinating is transferring pollen by hand, from the top of the stalk to the silk at the end of the ear of corn. Doing it at the right time is the trick. Al
