Good luck with that, supersuzie1 - do keep us posted.
Phil3 - you can start off aubergines in a small heated propagator (please see link below), but the plants do need heat once they've outgrown that. It might be worth a try anyway, and we might be blessed with a sufficiently hot summer to ripen the fruits. Or, alternatively, consider a crop that doesn't feel the cold quite as much!
kimi2000 - do take a look at our practical guide to growing aubergines, and Kate Bradbury's blog on the subject. Good luck
Hello, thank you for the information. What do you spray with tepid water, the flower or the plant? (this is mentioned while tapping the flower) Thank you
I grew aubergines last year in my greenhouse, they fruited well and grew to maturity,however they were inedible as they were very bitter.-any comments?
Could be you left them to long on the plant. Aubergines are best picked when they are still glossy looking. Dull coloured fruits are usually bitter.
