Sweetcorn Seeds

It’s hard to beat the taste of a freshly picked sweetcorn. In fact the very thought of a home grown cob - boiled to perfection and drizzled in butter - is enough to make your mouth water. Of course, the only way to assure such a delight is to grow your own because freshness is the only guarantee of quality flavour. In fact some say that there should be no more than 10 minutes between picking and cooking!

Luckily, growing sweetcorn from seeds is a straight forward affair requiring little technical knowledge. Probably the most important point is the time the seeds are sown, and this is all to do with temperatures.
