Instructions - Start eggplant indoors 6-9 weeks before the average last frost. Soak seeds first to encourage germination and then sow ¼" deep. Using bottom heat for a week to 10 days will help with sprouting. Transplant in warm soil in a location that gets 8-10 hours of direct sun each day. If growing eggplant in raised beds or containers, keep the plants well watered.
