Train Solanum against sturdy supports such as trellis or strong wires attached to walls and pergolas. Grow in a fertile, moist, free draining soil in a sunny position, preferably against a south-facing wall. When planting Solanum in poor soils, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil structure.
Feed and water regularly until established. Prune Solanum plants back to a pair of healthy buds after flowering, cutting shoots to within three or four buds of the permanent framework. Thin out overcrowded shoots. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in spring. Caution: All parts are harmful if eaten.
