Planting Timelines

    - Fill pots or cell trays with compost and press down to firm the soil
    - Take a pinch of seeds and sprinkle into the pot or tray
    - Aubergine seeds have a good germination rate, so only sow a few more seeds than the amount of plants you eventually want
    - Cover the seeds with 0.5cm of compost, pat down and gently water
    - If starting the plants in a greenhouse, make sure to bring them inside during any cold spells
    - Aubergine plants like warm and sunny conditions, so only plant outside once large enough, and once conditions are warmer
    - Once the plant is mature, make sure there is only 2 main vertical stems. Remove any side shoots like you would for a tomato plant. This will ensure for a more productive plant!
