Eggplants & Basil & Cabbage

I was given several plants in the spring ~ the cilantro, jalepeno peppers are doing great but my cabbage & eggplants aren't. My basil was doing awesome but now is starting to fizzle. The eggplant keeps getting blossoms but never any further and my cabbage has leaves but no head. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

I've learned that the herbs really need to start growing in starter pots (window ledge size) with a combination of sun/shade and damp (not soaking) moisture. Once a few sprigs grow and a couple of leaves expand you can replant in a little larger pot (bigger than the window sill, but smaller than yard potter) with fertilizer made for herbs (vegetables) - but keep the water and Sun/shade same as in starter planter. Finger trim the leaves before they turn brown (in different climates = different leaf changing times). What ever you do try not to get discouraged... the only heb I found so far that grows the best up here in Washington state (PNW) is our Parsley and its pretty hardy too. Our Thyme died before the stem/leaves barely broke the surface... we didn't try that one again yet.
I don't know anything about Eggplants and cabbage, but this link: and this link:
could be more helpful than I am.
Another option is "Goggling" what your problem/question is and choosing one of the other dozen other links (unless someone in here can assist you more). Good Luck, and happy cooking!
