So, you’re thinking of planting vegetables in your garden? What vegetables do you want to plant and when should you plant them?

These are obviously very important questions to ask because working out the right time to plant your vegetables does require a little bit of forward planning. Different vegetables must be planted at different times of the season and if you put them in at the wrong time of the year, you are likely to meet with disaster.

So, to avoid that, plant the right variety of vegetables at the correct time of the year. That way you will give your vegetable plants the best possible opportunity to do well and thrive.

That’s all very well but, if you are a beginner, how do you determine which vegetables to grow and when during the season to plant them? As you most likely know, some vegetables thrive in the cooler months, some do better in the warmer months and the remainder prefer the months in between. How do you work it all out?

In an article such as this, it’s not practical to go into great detail about the planting schedule of every vegetable variety in the world. There are just too many of them and, besides, conditions are not the same in every country.

Having said that, however, I’m going to give you a guide to some of the most common vegetables and the best time of the year to grow them in Australia. Like many other large countries, Australia is divided into 4 major climatic zones: Tropical, Sub-Tropical, Temperate and Cold. Since many other countries have similar conditions (or zones), I’m sure you will also find this guide useful if you don’t live in Australia. Incidentally, I couldn’t readily find an Australian map depicting the various climatic zones which is not subject to copyright. If I do find one, I will update this post.

Here’s the guide. Use it to work out in advance what you are going to grow each season. You’ll be glad you did.

This guide applies to Australia

Planning ahead and planting vegetables at the correct time of the year is a must when you want to be assured of year-round supply of healthy vegetables, and it’s most definitely worth it!
