    I'm also pinning all my hopes on this bendy, wind battered PSB plant, it's just about 4ft tall and looks like it's going to produce more stems than the other 3 plants put together.. so steaked and tied to hopefully get it through to late winter/early spring!

    It does look a nice healthy plant.

    One of the surprises of 2019.. Mini Pop sweet corn, wasn't expecting the plants to grow to 8ft odd..

    For the size of the plant.. probably not, although each plant produced around 6-10 cobs it and they were far superior to shop bought bendy things.. it just seemed an awful lot of plant for not a lot of return!?

    ^Yes, and they're a lovely colour too. So clearly very healthy.
