Hi, Just wondering if it is a problem to plant sweet corn in trays and transplanting once bigger? Thanks Dale

I think they transplant ok. They sell corn seedlings in seed trays at Bunnings.

It is very easy to germinate corn in the garden. Plant into wet soil or give a good watering after planting and don't water again for 3-4 days depending if it is hot or warm. If you over water them they will rot. You can do in trays but as mention above be careful with watering. Transplant when about 75-100mm high, don't leave it until they are 300mm high. Sane applies to bean and peas.
