Care+
Plant out only when all chance of frost has passed and night temperatures stay above 12 degrees centigrade. We advise first acclimatising aubergine plants (Solanum melongena) before planting out.
To do this, stand them outdoors in the shade for an hour longer every day for a week. They can then be planted in a large pot – 3 to a pot. Stand the pots in full sun or dig them in, pot and all, in a sheltered, sunny spot.
Aubergines can be planted in a row, 35 cm apart. Removing the very first buds will encourage the plants to make stronger shoots more able to carry the fruits. Also remove any side shoots as outdoor aubergines require all the energy they can muster to keep the top shoots growing and produce flowers (and then fruit).
Aubergines are self-pollinating and (bumble) bees will help so ‘setting’ the fruit will not be a problem. Aubergine plants will be grateful for a good feed that you would normally give to other (flowering) pot plants.
If you plant your aubergines in a greenhouse, they will grow much taller and will require support. Use canes or even garden twine strung from the roof to the ground.
Water extra in periods or drought, keep the bed free of weeds and your plants will thrive.
