  • Growing Instructions:

    Aubergines can be grown outside in the south of England where the temperatures are a little milder - elsewhere in the UK they would need to be grown under glass or polythene.
    Sow indoors - Feb to May and plant out when the first flowers appear
    Sow outside - March to May when the air temperature is above 20C
    Sow 1cm deep in trays or alternatively two seeds per pot and then select the strongest seedling.
    When plants reach about 20cm in height pinch out the tips to encourage them to bush out. When flowers have formed mist flowers regularly with water to encourage a good fruit set and feed once a week with a potash-rich tomato feed.

    Harvest: July to October
