Our patio range will allow any gardener to 'Grow Your Own', with bumper harvests no matter how small your garden or patio. Spineless, dark purple, baby-sized (8cm) aubergine fruit. Compact 40-50cm tall plants, perfect for pots. Very early ripening variety, good to grow in the UK. Produces fruit all summer long. Can be grown in pots on a patio or greenhouse. AAS regional winner.

Growing Information

Gradually adjust them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before transplanting into rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. A fertile soil is essential as aubergines require high levels of nitrogen.

Prepare the soil in early spring by adding a quality grade compost to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant aubergines at a distance of 50cm (20") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.

Aubergines grow best at temperatures around 25°C with a higher level of humidity. To encourage a bushy habit, stake out the plants as they mature and grow. Pinch out the main tip too. Water regularly & once the first flowers bloom, feed aubergines every 2 weeks. Aubergines should be harvested from august onwards by cutting close to the stem. By regularly harvesting you will encourage the plant to flower for longer.
