Help with Ichiban Japanese Eggplant
My wife asked me yesterday why we are not growing Eggplant ten weeks after she asked me not to. (Man I hate these cooking shows.) So today I purchased a large Ichiban Japanese Eggplant for her. There are three plants in the pot. Is it best to plant them as they are with three plants so close together? Or should I try to separate them and plant all three separately? I will be building a trellis for them. (I can't help myself, its what I do.) Any recommendations for the size of the trellis? Can Eggplant be overwintered in warm climates? Anything special I should know about their planting and culture? I don't like Eggplant and have never grown them. Even so I know that if they fail when everything else is thriving I will be in the Dog House for sure. (And we don't even have a dog.)
Somebody help me.
