Planting: Corn is very susceptible to frosts. You can lose a crop if you plant too early. Corn doesn't transplant well, either, so if you garden in a short-season area and want to start corn indoors, use biodegradable pots to avoid disturbing the roots at transplanting time. Its better to wait until all danger of frost is past and the soil warms up to the 60Â°F needed for seed germination. If the weather stays cool, spread black plastic on the planting area to warm the soil more quick
