Australia – Temperate climate zones

It’s the month of July, and Midwinter has arrived! As all of Nature’s energies turn inwards, and life comes to a standstill, we finally have a chance to rest and reflect too.

During this month temperatures will hit their lowest for the year in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, and rain will fall for half the month. Brief spells of strong cold winds may be experienced, becoming stronger in the afternoon, particularly in Melbourne. Frosts also become more frequent during this month.

There’s a range of seeds to sow, and lots of opportunity for winter pruning, relocating deciduous plants and planting new ones!
