Question

Hello,
I am just writing to ask about an eggplant I have been growing.
At the moment it is 18" high and the first aubergines are now beginning to show. However the plant pot is only 6" by 6". I was wondering whether I should move it in to a bigger pot or leave it for now. Thank You.


The Green Chronicle replies...

This sounds like a big plant for the pot you have it in. I would be tempted to very carefully pot it on into something larger. In the meantime, you have to bear in mind that container grown plants like aubergines and tomatoes always need to be kept thoroughly watered in order to promote proper fruit formation.
