Aubergine 'Czech Early'
Solanum melongena, Egg PlantOutdoor aubergines can be hit and miss in a less than perfect British summer. We've selected Aubergine Czech to ensure success in your garden no matter the weather. This fast growing aubergine is early to flower and set fruit, giving plants a longer growth period to reach their full cropping potential. Large oval fruits are produced on compact plants with virtually no spines on the flower stems, leaves or branches for easy picking on the patio. Perfect for grow bags and containers. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 60cm (24"). More info

Buckwheat decomposes quickly for excellent humus formation and improvement to soil structure and moisture retention. Contents: 75g (2.5 oz) sufficient to sow 12 sq.m (approx 13 sq.yd). More info
