Our eggplant seedlings are finally coming through. We replanted them on March 15th, and they finally started to sprout at the very begging of April. We transplanted the seedlings to individual pots on April 7th, and we’ve been watering them on and off with Kelp Tea and PlanTea.
Tip for next year: Eggplants, okra, and peppers need to be started before the tomatoes. The eggplants and okra will need lots of heat to germinate – most of the seed packages say 80-90F! Placing a heating pad under small sprouting trays may just do the trick.
