Cool Season Green Manures
As a general guide sow autumn; in areas with cold winters in southern Australia, begin sowing in early March and again in early spring; most of northern NSW and Queensland should wait until late April - May before sowing; in frost-free areas these seeds can be sown right through winter, until early August. More specific sowing times are listed as part of the seed description.

Our standard postage is $9.95 for all orders which includes Bulk Seed Packs. The $5.95 postage fee for up to 100 standard packets of seed, only includes the smaller 10m2 packets not the 1000m2 or 4500m2 seed packs or kits.

Due to high postage fees there is a higher cost for bulk seed in some Australian States.

Asian and Tropical Vegetables For Hot Wet Summers
If you are challenged by pest and disease problems in your vegetable garden during hot, humid summers, don’t give up! Green Harvest offers a range of vegetables, grown around the world in subtropical and tropical areas, that we have found to be hardy and reliable to the weather extremes of high temperature and humidity experienced in the ‘wet season’. As a general rule sow these vegetables from October through to March, to replace more temperate varieties. Seeds suitable for subtropical and tropical conditions are marked H for hot and humid!

Part of the problem is gardening books written by authors from cooler areas neglecting to give good advice on plant selection for northern areas of Australia. We recommend the books The Seed Savers Handbook or Organic Vegetable Gardening for the best information on subtropical vegetables.
