Despite earlier success with growing eggplant this season flowers wont fruit. Can you help.

Plenty of flowers appear but no fruit evenuates. This has occurred with four plants. The plants look very healthy, some are almost a metre high.

Answer: Hi John,
Due to the very wet conditions there may not be as many bees pollinating the eggplant flowers. Have you seen many bees in your garden this Spring and Summer? If possible try to have some flowers close by the vegetable patch to help attract bees. Also use some Thrive Soluble Flower and Fruit to ensure more flowers and produced. Eggplants do not enjoy cooler conditions.
