You are watching: Why is my corn not growing tall

Our main garden is in the shade a great component of the day, which for many kind of of theplants is OK given that it is so hot and also dry here best now. But our corn is just around 2 feet high and also beginning to tassel. Will plants that are just this high create full size/great tasting sweet corn? I"m debating about pulling it out and planting something else. Oh, this corn was planted in April!I know it is not the seed because I have a corn patch in complete sunlight and also the corn is doing good and has passed the initially planting also though there was about 6 weeks various in planting time.Thanks,Marsha in HOT OK
Sweet corn needs complete sun, many nitrogen fertility, and also many water to make huge stalks and also huge full ears(even though tbelow are some varieties of early/little corn). If you are close to trees, and also shaded by them the tree roots might have actually sucked out all the fertility and moisture. Stunted sweet corn will certainly go with the process of trying to make ears, however commonly they are stunted, too(nubbins) and also will have few, if any dedeloped kernels.geo
Thanks. We"re gonna just pull it up and also plant...what? It"s too at an early stage for a fallgarden below. I"ll need to look with my seeds. What WOULD choose the shade?Marsha in OK
Thanks. We"re gonna simply pull it up and plant...what? It"s as well early on for a fallgarden right here. I"ll need to look via my seeds. What WOULD choose the shade?Marsha in OK
Frankly, there"s not much that will certainly germinate in this warmth, likes shade, and has actually enough time to construct. I would attempt sowing some buckwwarm for fertility, then wait six weeks so the sunlight will certainly be lower--then try some loss crops of lettuce, spinach, radishes, and so on that might make it. Next year, I would cut down the trees.......
