OL it's the same pollination as courgettes.

Old timer2  I grew mine and transplanted into household sized buckets but due to them attracting aphids they were taken out of the greenhouse and put in a sheltered sunny place.  I removed a lot of the flowers/ fruits and got about 4 half decent sized ones on each plant. I believe aubergine need a long and warm summer to do their best...we don't often get that in S.Yorks

What to grow after peas and beans?

pumpernickel I always believed that about nitrogen and left roots in but I think I've read somewhere on the forum that it is an old gardener's taleThis will move your thread back up and I hope someone will advise.

In my opinion I would remove the roots and enrich the planter to give B's some chance. My winter veg are already planted and my carrots aren't ready yet

Tootles I misunderstood the thread title I thought you were on the sherbert

I don't pickle beetroot but love it cold with Greek tzatziki on it. Good way to use up your cucumbers and garlic. Also nice slightly warm with garlic crushed on it and drizzled with olive oil

I've only grown aubergine a couple of times and decided not to bother again so I haven't had a read at the links from Dove.

I wonder if you have too many fruits on the plant, maybe less fruits will mean larger ones  just a thought.
