Growing corn in Ireland is a challenge, to put it mildly, but I finally managed it last year! I chose the supersweet early variety Earlibird. I grew it in modules indoors until the last week of May, then planted it in the most sunny, sheltered spot I had. Once the pollen appeared I would manually pollinate them whenever I was in the veg patch - literally hug a load of stems and gently wobble them. It worked! I had a corncob from every plant in September!
I have a bunch of other early supersweets to try this year
