  • In cool temperate zones sow summer crops such as tomatoes, capsicum, chilli, sweetcorn, bush and climbing beans, potato, zucchini, cucumber, summer squash, pumpkin, and melon. In cold areas such as the highlands, Tassie and eastern Victoria, you might also have success with leafy greens such as silverbeet and rocket plus roots such as beetroot and carrot.

  • In warm temperate areas, try all of the summer crops above plus eggplant, basil, sweet potato, amaranth and rosellas.

  • The arid/semi-arid zones plant heat lovers such as eggplant, capsicum, chilli, basil, pumpkin and watermelon.

  • In the subtropics go for the summer crops above plus eggplant, capsicum, chilli, basil, watermelon, pumpkin, Malabar spinach, okra, choko, amaranth and passionfruit.
