MAIZE (Zea mays)
Maize or Indian Corn is not a crop for most gardens in this climate, but if it is desired, seeds should be sown in the middle of April in pots or boxes in a temperature of 60°. They should be potted singly into 3-in. pots and later planted out at the end of May after they are hardened off. The plants, if grown in rows, should be 3 ft. apart one way and 2 ft. the other way. The cobs are cut and used in a fresh green state before the seeds harden. As a rule this crop is more suitable for growing in flower gardens or shrubberies, where single plants make decorative specimens.
