Does anyone have suggestions for growing eggplant from seed?
I'm your average urban gardener. The past couple of years I have grown tomatoes, jalapeños, bell peppers, etc. on my apartment patio. This year I'm trying eggplant for the first time. While all of the other seeds have sprouted successfully, the eggplant has not.
It's been about 14 days and still no sign from my eggplant seeds. Does anyone have experience or tips for eggplant seed germination?
I tried growing eggplants last year and I had about 6 pots of it and it was successful. It had lots of flowers that turned into eggplants. The only thing, is I could not remember how many days before the seeds germinated. I grew it in my greenhouse because I know eggplants grow in hot places like the Philippines where I come from. I grew it from seeds which I bought from Poundland shop here in England. I like this vegetable because it is very nutritious and easy to look after.
Some seeds are slow to germinate. I'm not sure about eggplant, but I do have some eggplant seeds in peat pots now, along with tomatoes and peppers. The tomatoes are germinating, but no eggplant or peppers yet. It's been 10 days. I'll let you know.
If you'll read the package on your seed, you'll find eegplant takes something like 120-180 days, where other garden plants are usually 45-60 days. I start my eggplant inside in early Dec., the plants are about 18-24inches now and I'm just getting the first signs of flowers.
