Growing Aubergines from seedlings. Strong plants, plenty of flowers. These after a while die back and fall off.NO Fruit. Well fertilised bed, full sun,kept moist. What's wrong ?

Aubergine need a good supply of water to set fruit. They will self-pollinate as well as insects but if the water supply is not good the first thing to miss out will be the flowers and fruit. This is natures way of keeping the plant alive in anticipation of water to complete its cycle.
