I planted corn seeds in this 8x8 foot raised bed. When they came up, I thinned to 64 plants. So there was about one plant per square foot. The soil used was a mix of potting soil and mulch that was about 6 feet deep.
I kept it watered and fertilized until it produced the corn. The variety of corn planted was Sugar Dots Hybrid, a sweet corn. The end result was 60 ears of very nice corn.

Did you really mean "6 FEET deep"? That would take a LOT of compost and potting soil. Like 384 cubic feet of materials! Does corn really grow roots that deep?
Sorry about the mistake I made on the depth of soil and mulch used in the raised bed. It should be 6 inches instead of 6 feet.
