Eggplant

Solanum melongena
Start eggplants indoors 8 weeks before your frost free date. Sow seeds .6 cm deep. Germination will occur in 5-10 days at  27-32 degrees Celsius. Move seedlings into larger containers when first true leaves appear and give them a rich mix with lots of compost. Keep plants warm and harden off before planting outdoors. Space plants 45-60 cm apart in the row and rows 75-90 cm apart. Row covers and black plastic mulch can boost production by providing additional warmth.
