Seasonal Planting Guides





For success in growing vegetables it is important to time the planting of seeds and seedlings to take advantage of seasonal conditions most favourable for their growth.

In Canberra many gardeners do not plant out frost sensitive seedlings until after the Melbourne cup. However, there are many vegetables that can be grown throughout Canberra’s winters provided the plants are well established before the heavy frosts. These seasonal planting calendars will aid Canberra gardeners to time their plantings to correspond to favourable growing conditions in most years.
