    Hi I live in Beerwah in the lower Sunshine Coast hinterland Queensland.
    Happy to be part of self-sufficient me as I always need help with sub-tropical gardening. Hailing from New Zealand and the UK I’m used to cold weather. Been here 20 years still can’t get used to it. Any help appreciated

    Welcome Annebelle.
    Growing a garden hereabouts is more about keeping the various critters at bay rather than seasonal restrictions.
    Most vegies will grow in some part of the garden most of the year as there s generally a nice warm spot somewhere if you want to grow lettuce in winter for example.
    But the wildlife will also be very happy if you grow lettuce in winter when they are struggling to find lush green leaves to eat!
    Even in late summer & autumn when there is plentiful green grass, they will still prefer your hard won veg & fruit!

    Hi Annabelle,

    New here myself, on the South side of Brisbane though. Just got a 5 acre plot and super excited to tend the gardens. I've also been here 20 years now and know exactly how you feel ( I'm saving to buy land in Tasmania, European weather and 100 acres, the dream )

    What peaks your interest the most?

    Cheers,

    Tynan

    Welcome Annabelle. The warmer weather tends to be good for a wider variety of fruits and vegetables. Hope you've stayed cool this summer. We should have a good late autumn and winter for plants this year around...
