Sweet corn seeds,

Hi everyone.I have just bought some Sweetcorn seeds,is it too early to plant straight outside,or should I germinate them indoors first to give them a head start.Many thanks in advance.Elizabeth.

    I would sow them in modules indoors so you can keep an eye on them and protect them from rodents.

    As obelixx says - start them off indoors to begin with and then plant outside well into June when they are a good size and can fend for themselves.

    I sowed mine about 10 days ago and had 100% germination. Now about 5cm / 2" tall . I grow them on under cover until they're about 12" / 30cm tall and plant out in June.
