The aubergines have got something of a wriggle on, and things are looking up for them. The one, the first aubergine, seems to be growing at speed daily. Two additional babies have been spotted on the black prince plant. With the Diamond and Dancer plants starting to send out little flower buds.
The plants themselves are quite robust, and now propped up by canes. The flowers start off with a small stalk, but as the fruit starts to swell, the stalk dangles. Have nestled some fleece beneath the fruit to help protect against any would be damage.
