MILD COASTAL AND WARM INLAND
The Mild Coastal & Warm Inland monthly planting guide is based on information drawn from five planting guides for South Eastern Australia, both contemporary and historical.

The mild coastal area covers coastal South Eastern South Australia, all of coastal Victoria and coastal New South Wales up to Wollongong
BALLARAT AND DISTRICT MONTHLY SEED PLANTING GUIDE
This Ballarat & District planting guide was put together by John Ditchburn with input from a number of experienced vegetable gardeners in the Ballarat area, only vegetables that have actually been grown by John or these gardeners have been listed. As such the guide is far from complete, it is recommended that local Ballarat gardeners also consult other cool climate vegetable planting guides.
