Sowing info

An early start can really help with aubergine crops. Sow aubergine seeds from January to April indoors, supplementing light if necessary. Sow seeds on the surface of a free draining, moist, peat free compost and just cover with vermiculite or compost. Place somewhere warm with a temperature of 18-21C until after germination which takes 10-14 days. Once plants are roughly 20cm high, feed weekly with a quarter strength organic feed.

Growing info

Plant out after all risk frost has passed. Grow aubergines in a sheltered position in full sun. Aubergines will perform better when grown in a greenhouse or polytunnel. Water regularly to prevent buds from dropping.

Sowing Months: February – May
