|Eggplant Seed Planting
Eggplants do best in well-drained soil that has
been enhanced with compost and manure. They thrive in high heat and high
humidity areas. Plant your seeds indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before setting outside.
When seedlings are 4" to 6" tall, transplant them into larger pots so roots
can grow properly. Grow transplants at 50 F to 70 F. Spring planting
should occur 2 weeks after last frost. Protect the plants from frost and wind.
Plants will not set fruit when nighttime temperatures fall below 65 F. Plants can grow
3 ft tall.
