July Vegetable and Herb Gardening Calendar for Cool & Alpine Climate Australia

Australia - cool climate zones
Australia – Cool & alpine 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. Brief spells of strong cold winds may be experienced, becoming stronger in the afternoon. Frosts also become more frequent during this month. There may be light snow in some areas and there’s snow on the Great Dividing Range.

Hobart will experience around half a month of rain, and Canberra has its frostiest and foggiest month of the year.

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