How to Plant and Grow Popcorn
Direct sow 5-6 seeds per foot, about 1-2 in. deep in rows (a minimum of 4 rows will ensure pollination) 3 ft. apart. Thin to 12 in. apart. Kept at 70-90°F., germination is in 7-14 days. If birds are a problem, sow in cell packs and transplant into the garden 1 ft. apart. Plant in spring to early summer, after all danger of frost, and when the ground has warmed.
