Sweetcorn advice

hi all

ive got some sweetcorn under netting at the moment, it's almost touching the top now. Is it best to cane them now or let Mother Nature do her thing?

    They shouldn't need caning. Let them be free image

    It doesnt need to be netted either. Its wind pollinated, so let the breezes get at it.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    If they're planted in blocks/rows they should be self-supporting.

    plus side of netting is that it keeps the crows from pecking into them as they did with mine last year.

    This year they're in the tunnel.
