Hi Dennis, I use borax, dilute one tablespoon in four litres of water and spray plants when they start to flower, worked like a bomb on my brinjal plants, they also like calcium, take egg shells wash them and then crush into jar of water let stand for a couple of days them treat brinjal plants by pouring water into soil. Please don't forget to wash shells first otherwise you will have a hell of a stink, like my first time. Cheers Nick

A general fertiliser will do. If you start with good rich soil then you really don't need to fertilise again.
