Sweet corn seeds are wrinkly.

April through to the end of May is the perfect time to sow your corn seeds. Whether you’re growing normal sweet corn, pop corn, or baby corn, they all need to be sown the same. Here’s how I sow mine.

Sowing Runner and French beans

It’s a tricky decision as to when to sow these. Sow them too early and they start twisting around each other, sow them too late, and you won’t get a decent crop.

Over the years I have figured out that the best time to sow them inside is 3-4 weeks before I plan on planting them outside (early to mid June). Remember they’re “tender crops”, which means they don’t like the frost. So figure out when your last frost date is and work back from there.

I’ve filled one small bed with soil, so I can finally get my garlic planted out in the soil.

The construction of the raised beds….

With a massive thank you to so many people, my raised beds are finally constructed. We had to buy a much more powerful drill for the job, but after several colourful words, and lots of heavy lifting, deep screwing, and humping from all angles, they are all ready.
