Hey guys,

I know ideally Sweetcorn should be sown in March but due to the cold & wet April we're having has anyone sown it later, i.e now, & had success?

Ideally should be planted out in May but have the seed & want to try it.

Hi Charles,

This is my first year to grow sweetcorn I have seedlings in the greenhouse ready to be planted out but all the books say 'do not plant out untill all danger of frost is gone'. So I am going to wait for another week to plant mine outdoors.

The other thing is, with the weather being so cold we may get an indian summer in September and October so you may well be in time to sow seeds.
