Aubergine flowers
« on: August 05, 2012, 09:25:03 am »
Our aubergines are starting to flower. Beautiful but nasty prickly receptacle.

I understand that I need to fertilise them with a brush.

Does anybody know when the best time to do this is?

I suspect that these flowers are still a bit "immature".

We do the best we can with the information we have

When we know better we do better

When you can see the pollen particles on the yellow bits - it needs to be a certain temp for them to develop
