    Aubergine growing advice

    Fruit should be very shiny. If it loses it's shine, it's past it. Use secateurs to snip the stem and take it by the fruit end. They've got vicious spines!

    Well people have early varieties these days, but to me they were always a winter veg from around November to February, never used to start picking until after the first frost.

    Mint yellowing

    You only need good strong roots, the top growth can be cut off.High Nitrogen feed would be best, but in good soil it should be ok without feeding too much.
