How to grow sweetcorn from seed
Sow seeds in mid-spring 4 weeks before last expected frost in your area, singly 1cm (0.5in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of compost. Germination usually takes 6-10 days at 21-24C (70-75F).
Plant out 45cm (18in) apart when all danger of frost has passed, in blocks of short rows rather than one long row to ensure adequate cross pollination. A warm, sunny sheltered position in fertile, moist yet free-draining soil is best.
