I wrapped the corn and sunflower cage along with the LG trellis in polytunnel plastic this year. With the skurupborren (soil drill) from Börje Gustavsson, I drilled holes for each of the corn plants (about 80 cm deep) and filled with compost and dried cow manure pellets.

This drill is a great invention. I have used in on the swedes, squash, marrow, sunflowers and corn patches till now and have drilled for water at a neighbouring allotment (2 metres deep). It breaks up the lower clay level without disturbing the soil balance like digging the whole thing up would. And an easy way to get rid of all your kitchen and garden waste (and compost if you still have any).
