Planting Guide

The table below shows a month-by-month planting guide for south Queensland coastal areas. Keep in mind that guides are just that, as micro-climates and variable weather conditions must be factored in as well. For instance if your fruit trees start flowering three weeks earlier than normal, you should adjust your planting schedule and the use of this (or any other) guide accordingly. For other planting guides, reference the BOGI Queensland Planting Guide.
