Thompson & Morgan RHS Aubergine Bonica F1 10 Seed

£1.99

Aubergine - Bonica F1

Early to ripen and continuing to crop heavily throughout the season, Bonica produces a good yield of long, oval, shiny purple fruits. Ideal for patio containers, the plants are compact and bushy, and the flavoursome fruits average 12cm in length.

Sow seeds from February to May for indoor cultivation or from March to April for growing outdoors. Soaking the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before sowing will assist germination. Sow seeds on the surface of a free draining, moist seed compost and cover with 6mm layer of vermiculite or compost. Place in a propagator or seal the container inside a polythene bag at constant temperature of 18-21C until after germination which takes 10-14 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully transplant them into 7.5cm pots and grow on at a slightly reduced temperature. When all risk of frost is passed and the soil is warm, harden off and plant aubergines in their final positions. For indoor cultivation, pot on into larger containers or plant 2 aubergines per growbag. Outdoors, plant aubergines in rich fertile soil at a distance of 90cm apart, in rows spaced 90-120cm apart. Grow aubergines in a sheltered position in full sun.
