RE: sweetcorn help

Best case: Stowells Evergreen has a longer maturity date than Golden Cross Bantam so pollination may not overlap.

Worse case: If cross pollination does occur you may get some bicolor ears. Will not be detrimental to eating quality.

Successfully transplanting with out disturbing the roots will be the bigger problem.
