It is a good idea to start them off in modules so they have developed roots, then the blackbirds won't pull them out of the soil.

Not sure why you think it's too late. Are they designed for early planting?

Not necessary to remove the flowers, unless you have time and the inclination!

Sweetcorn ripe?
