I rather foolishly planted out a batch of sweet corn a few weeks ago then fleeced with scaffold netting. We then had hail and a few cold days. Looks like I've lost nearly two thirds of them!! I do have a few spares but not enough.
My dilemma now is do I sow more in modules now or do I soak the seed a bit them plant a few seeds direct per station and keep the best one. I had a disaster last year when my crop was wiped out 2 weeks before they were ready by the freak September frost so need to get them in asap. I can get them in my heated propagator so they will be up and just showing in 5 days..
As I'm not used to growing sweet corn what would be the best way to get the best results.

Dulce is eating OK and won't stay in, but then he is a male cat. He has a big chunk out of his fur, and it had been bleeding. Think it maybe a trip to the vet for an injection, but OH says he is OK. Not sure if it was another cat but very strange, and a round circle of fur gone, hope it wasn't a rat or fox. Anyway told him to stay in, but he has run off, so will see if he is OK tomorrow and maybe get the vet to give him an injection against infection. (More money, but who cares).

I noticed today that 3 of my potato plants had slightly yellow leaves. They are the only ones like this and of the same variety Victoria.
I would welcome some advice as to what the problem might be.

... not on the flower head, but below ground. They look just like the ones that grow on elephant garlic, but softer.
Has anyone tried growing from these?
They are 'Jaune de Poitou' that have stood over the winter, and showing signs of going to seed. Seems like an easy way to produce this years crop.
Anyway, I've put some in a large pot to see how they do.
