Purchased two aubergine seedlings from the nursery, as I thought it was a little late to start anything off from seed.

nic's Aubergine Care Instructions

Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 1.95 feet (60.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Eggplant normally grows to a mature height of 1.20 metres (that's 3.90 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in partial sun light: Eggplant likes a position of full sun.

Remember to water very often.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8) is within the ideal range for Eggplant. The recommended range is between Zone 4 and 14.

More information about Aubergine is available in the Folia gardener's wiki. All Aubergine Care Instructions have been kindly provided by our members.

    None yet – I’m pretty sure that there is one bud forming now, so fingers crossed for something edible before winter!
