When to sow
When to Sow Jackpot Aubergine Seeds
January to April. Germination typically takes 7-10 days.
Where to Sow
Space the seeds 2cm (¾") apart in seed trays or two to a cell in modules under glass at 20°C. Cover seeds lightly with vermiculite or finely sieved compost.
What to do next
As soon as two full leaves have developed, prick off seedlings into individual pots. Grow on and plant into grow-bags or large pots. Plants can be grown in containers outside in a sunny sheltered spot. Feed plants as soon as first fruits set, once a week with a high potash tomato food.
July to October. Jackpot aubergines are usually ready to harvest 8-9 weeks after sowing.
Move patio plants into a cool conservatory as autumn approaches so the last fruits of the season have time to mature fully.
