Download Gardening Calendars (Australian Temperate Climate)

One of the secrets to productive gardening is seasonal timing – knowing what to plant when, and doing all the important gardening tasks such as pruning, transplanting and even propagation at the right time of year.

It’s hard for anyone to remember it all, so many gardeners use a handy reference, the gardening calendar!

To make your gardening life easier, we’ve got some garden calendars for you, which provide the following information:

  1. a month by month rundown of all those pressing chores that need to be done
  2. a comprehensive “sow what when” monthly seed planting guide

Please note, these gardening calendars are for Australian temperate climates (climates with a warm summer, average January maximum temperature of less than 30°C and a cool winter). 

This includes most of southern coastal Australia from Melbourne and  Adelaide through to Perth, the coastal region south of Sydney, the New South Wales tablelands and inland Queensland.

  1. The calendar is a blessing. Do the plantings work for the Central Table Lands ie Bathurst NSW? or should I do everything a month later? Our temps go to 35 in summer (these days) and can get to -10 in winter but would typically be more like -5 to -7.

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing!! 🙂
    The last calendar link ( 6. December-January Gardening Calendar ) gives back the 404 error. It is not possible to download the PDF. Can you check it and maybe share it again?

    Thanks again!


  3. Wow these calendars are very helpful. It is always a challenge for people to be productive in their gardening specially in this Australian climate. Many get discouraged when they plant the wrong plants for the season and do not get the outcome that they expect. Thank you so much for sharing this!
