Check out what to plant this Autumn based on your location around the country.
Australia is one of (if not the) most varied climates in the world, with a significant number of microclimates that exist and shift as we move between different parts of the country.
Given our audience does call very different locations home, we have set out some basic planting types and tips based on broad regions of Australia.
If you are based close to us on the Sunshine Coast, feel free to drop in and see us for more information and to pick up your seedling stock (we will have our full range at the nursery from next week). For those hailing from further afield, our team is happy to help and you can reach us at email@example.com
