Aubergines are best grown indoors, 'Baby Black Jack' can be raised in a greenhouse or a south or west facing windowsill. Pot up plug plants into 2 litre pots on receipt.
Aubergines grow best at temperatures of 25-30C (77-86F) with high humidity levels. Pinch out the main growing tip to encourage a bushy habit. Water regularly to prevent buds from dropping. Once the first flowers have set, feed aubergines every 2 weeks with a high potash tomato feed. Harvest aubergines by cutting them close to the stem from August onwards, when the fruit appears fully coloured and shiny. Harvest regularly to promote further flowers and to extend the picking season.
