    Aubergine seeds have a good germination rate, so only sow a few more seeds than the amount of plants you eventually want
    Cover the seeds with 0.5cm of compost, pat down and gently water
    If starting the plants in a greenhouse, make sure to bring them inside during any cold spells
    Aubergine plants like warm and sunny conditions, so only plant outside once large enough, and once conditions are warmer
