Hi all

I was just looking at my potted poached egg plants flowers and they all seem to be dying off a little, losing their flowers.  I would like to collect some seeds to plant and grow next year but i am unsure where the seeds are, are they the petals? Or are they the 4 small ball things that are left in the flower head once the petals have dropped? Or... Are they actually inside these 4 ball thingies? Any help would be great thanks!

They'll set their own seed davie, youcan move them to where you want them. If the flowers are just going over they won't be there yet.

You can see the seed forming very clearly in the last pic. Flowers aren't always the same shape but all the bits will be there
