How to grow aubergine/eggplant:

Solanum melongena.


Buy Organic Aubergine/Eggplant seeds from The Green Chronicle (Pay in $US, £, Euro).

Sow these seeds in a hotbed or greenhouse in early March. 

When 3 inches high transfer the seedlings to boxes or pots of light compost, taking great care not to disturb the roots too much.

They will need to be kept under glass and repotted into a rich soil mix again taking care not to damage the roots.

In early June the plants can be put either outside in their pots or planted out into a sunny position.

As soon as the first eggplants are set, mulch the plants well with compost and keep the whole plants well watered.
