I started several plants from seed in March, potted them up in 3, 4 and 5 inch plastic pots and set them a couple inches deep into well-aged leaf compost in my garden in early June. They received water every second day from an oscillating sprinkler and eventually just barely rooted into the compost. I fertilized once with an organic general purpose mix, but other than that did nothing until I took them out of the vegetable garden a couple weeks ago when they started flowering (in early September). The smallest pot and plant flowered first and has the most blossoms (which makes sense, as the plant is said to flower better when pot-bound). I'm looking forward to seeing if I get any fruit, but the largest plant is only a foot high at this point, so I may need to limit the set.
