Share

Hello Herb Lovers,

There’s no time in the garden more exciting than spring. Everything buzzing with new life, growth and colour. There’s so much to do, it’s not too hot or too cold, making every chore a pleasure. Now is the time to delight in the pure joy of gardening. Since you did all the right preparation in winter your garden will be ready and eager for a spring top up of fertiliser and mulch.

Australian Climates

And no matter what area and what climate, now is the perfect time to update your garden with new herbs too. Try these herbs for your area.

Cold Climate & Southern Tableland Areas (e.g. Melbourne)

Sow basil, chives, coriander, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, sage and thyme.

Temperate Areas (e.g. Sydney)

Basil, chives, coriander, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, sage and thyme.

Subtropical & Coastal (e.g. Northern NSW, S.E. Queensland )

Basil, chives, coriander, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, sage and thyme.

Tropical (e.g. North Queensland)

Plant basil, chilli, chives, dill, ginger, mint, oregano and parsley.

Outback (e.g. Inland and desert)
Pretty much all types of herbs grow well in this area. Make sure you protect plants from the heat in late spring. Inland areas too have a good climate for growing herbs.

Stay Herbal!
