Start inside about 6 weeks before last frost date (or about 8 weeks before expected transplanting). Can be sown directly outside in hardiness zones 8a and above. Plant 1/4 inch deep in flats or cell-type containers. Keep soil warm (about 80 F to 90 F if possible) until emergence. Eggplant will not germinate in cool soil.
