Lark - and it's horizontal!   Will the cobs keep maturing/growing? ;)

Cheers,  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Best to prop them up, once the wind has dropped - put canes on the outside corners and tie string around the block.

...and diagonally too (every little extra helps!  ;))
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Sweetcornis Horizontalis!
« Reply #3 on: August 12, 2019, 13:31 »
Good afternoon everyone,  will the cobs carry on growing/maturing when the stem is horizontal (give or take a few degrees)? :)

Cheers,  Tony.

The rockin' and rollin' will have loosened the roots - they will do far better stood back up, earthed up a little and firmed back in. A little support as per previous replies wouldn't go amiss if more strong winds are forecast.
