November Vegetable and Herb Gardening Calendar for Tropical Climate Australia

Australia - tropical climate zones
Australia – Tropical climate zones

It’s November, the last month of spring, and with the weather warming up we see plenty of sunny days and lots of new green growth emerging in our gardens.

The tropical cyclone season begins now and continues into autumn. Rainfall is increasing, with an average of 17 days of rain in Darwin.

Right throughout Australia this month there’s the possibility of very sudden hot weather striking without warning, so it’s important to protect plants from sun and wind. Very high temperatures can occur almost anytime, increasing the risk of bushfires.

Newly planted trees and shrubs need to be watered regularly as the hot weather and strong winds can quickly dry out the soil.
