Eggplant can be sowed indoors and transplanted 3 weeks after the last frost when it’s at least 6” tall. Keep seedling soil moist as eggplant needs moisture to thrive and near a sunny window. For individuals with longer growing seasons seeds can be directly sown about 1/4” deep and 2-3’ apart in all directions.
