Once the soil outside warms up, signaling the retreat of cold days, transplant these little seedlings into your garden. Ensure they are spaced 18-24 inches apart and that rows are maintained at a distance of 30-36 inches. With the right care and a touch of patience, your garden will soon be adorned with the ethereal beauty of the Casper White Eggplants.
