This year I decided to grow my own popcorn. In my opinion, it tastes much better than the kind you buy in a box, even without butter and salt! Plant popcorn the same way you plant traditional corn, in rows. Popcorn is also wind pollinated. Space the rows about 1 foot apart. Plant popcorn 1 inch deep and 8-10″ apart. Some packages recommend planting closer together and then thinning later, but if you don’t have a lot of seed, you may want to just skip to planting them at the thinning space of 8-10″ apart.
