1 packet (10 aubergine seeds) (54017)

  • Sow the seed on the surface of a free-draining, moist compost and cover with 6mm (1/4in) layer of vermiculite or compost.
  • Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 18-21°C (65-70F) until after germination which takes 10-14 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on at a slightly reduced temperature.
  • Pot on finally into a larger container, or 2 plants per growbag, or outdoors once plants have acclimatised, and after risk of frost.
  • It is not neccessary to pinch out the growth or sideshoots.
  • Once first flowers have set, feed and water regularly with a high potash tomato feed. Harvest regularly to promote further flowers and aubergines.
