HOW TO GROW EGGPLANT FROM SEEDS
It is possible to grow Aubergine Purple Violetta di Firenze from seed. Garden Paradise Seeds sells the best seeds for growing healthy Aubergine Purple. It is sometimes possible to harvest them outside from the end of August if they are pre-planted in spring. You can pre-cultivate your seeds in your room in seed pots from February until mid-March. Make sure the seed compost is evenly moist, and sow it 1.5 cm deep. At 20 - 25 ° Celsius, germination could take 15 - 30 days. Heat will be provided on the bottom of the seedling by a seed heating pad. Germination of this type of eggplant seed takes a few days.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
It is best to incorporate compost before planting Aubergine Violetta di Firenze, as it prefers nutrient-rich soil. To grow healthy Aubergines, be sure that they are getting full sun six hours a day, and keep them moist. Water deeply and slowly once a week or more frequently during dry weather to keep the soil moist. You should avoid using deep digging tools since the roots are shallow and can be damaged by deep digging when the leaves are four-leafed, plant in pots, and place a light source underneath—a sheltered place with fertile soil around 20 degrees Celsius with full sun. Plant your seeds outdoors around mid-May at a distance of 60 x 80 cm.
