Guide for Planting eggplant
Since our featured ingredient in many of our Dominex products is eggplant. Here's some pointers for planting eggplant in your garden. Eggplant is a warm climate vegetable and does not tolerate frost. Cool nights can slow the eggplant's growth. (Consider creating a microclimate in your garden with simple brick/stone walls or ground covering to retain the day's heat). Plant eggplants in rich soil with full sun, with protection from winds. Eggplant can take up to 4 months to bear fruit. So, be sure to plant early enough for a harvest before fall's first frost arrives.
