Here's a pretty handy month-by-month planting guide for south Queensland coastal areas. I think it's easy to read and covers most of the common types of food crops to be planted in the good old vegetable garden.
EDIT: This guide (linked below) seems to have been removed or not working. I'm going to create my own planting/sowing guide hopefully in the next few weeks and will post this info here on SSC and my blog website.

Nice one Mark. I love these guides and I always check them out when I see them.
I like the way they guide me in the garden as I need all the guidance I can get....o_O

Cheers mate.

Thanks for sharing this with me/us Johnm64... It's a great app and site.

I also like the " Grow Veg " planner as well as they include Aussie climatic info and they aren't purely Northern Hemisphere oriented.
In case you haven't seen it this is the link to their 30 day free trial. I have been in touch with them asking them about Aussie weather and seasons... They assured me it work as designed in Australia. :)

Your welcome, I have got my 12 month planting guide printed and in a folder.
that link you gave has some good ideas on it:thumbsup:
12 month planting guide from?? Gardenate? Or Grow Veg... LoL

I'm blonde (well silver now days), over 50, living in Sunny (not) Manchester and very easily confused... :)

What format do you use for the planting schedule? Excel? Or is it through Gardenate/Grow Veg?

Cheers for the reply. I would love to see how you format your schedule. All good learning for me.

my bad :blush:I should have said gardenate. I have used the guide for 5 years now.
I am not blonde but sometimes should be:facepalm:. I got the planting reminder's by email and just hit the print button.
I still receive the reminders because the folder is around somewhere?

So what diversity of plants do you grow and where are you based? SE QLD??

No worries John. It's all good mate. I just like learning from anyone who is doing, not just theorising. LoL.

Thanks for the clarification. :thumbsup: :)

Sorry for the delay in answering David.
I am 90kms north of Perth near Guilderton Western Australia.
7kms from the coast.

no real diversity yet , I just grow the easy things like lettuce, tomato, garlic, capsicum, chillies, cabbage(red and green), broccoli, cauliflower, peas, green beans, chives, shallots, corn, broad beans, pumpkin, watermelon, honey dew, rock melon etc...

basically what ever I can scrounge up.

we get scraps from a local growers market for the birds and I get a lot of seed that way.

regards john

Hello. This conversation is a bit old but I just joined. I live in Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast. I am so confused over planting guides. I have looked at so many and they are all different! For example. the BOG guide says Kale is only planted in January? Organic Gardner list says March to Sept. Grow Veg says March to June. And I have it growing right now and most of the year. Does anyone live in my area and which one do you go by???

Are they Australian publications, Lizi?
I used to live at Maleny and most things grow at any time of year up there on the range.
A few things didn't like the wet season very much like tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, and some herbs.
But as soon as the worst of the rain was over I'd get some planted and no worries.
Biggest issue with the red soil was making sure to lime it well and dig in plenty of compost and chook manure.

OK you are right. We have 4 metres of red topsoil but I have never used lime. Would you do this in the veg beds? And how much to use? What does the lime do ClissAT?
