I am growing mini sweetcorn for the first time. All growing well (no corn yet) but something is eating the leaves they look as though they are shredded? Thank you for your advice i hadn't seen any info on sweetcorn...will see how it goes.



The damage to the leaves is probably caused by slugs or snails, but sorry to be negative, you will probably find growing these is pointless anyway. In my experience each plant only produced one or two cobs, just like full grown corn, and to pick these small means you are using a huge area of space for a handful of mini corns!
I've never grown them since the first and only time!
