I have an aubergine plant doing very well, just starting to develop now but I have one that is close to resting on the soil & I don't want it to rot would straw on top of the soil help?

put an upturned saucer or plate there as the straw might encourage pests or diseases

Great idea thanks as always Michael, should I pinch out the top at this stage of the growing season?

dont pinch out yet as there is a long growing season ahead yet until end of September hopefully. Keep feeding and watering.
