What is the best prep after drying seeds to grow ? Thanks
Pumpkin 28 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Give them a couple of weeks to dry out, put them in a little sealing bag, then put them in a sealable jar and into the fridge. When you take them out of the fridge leave for 20-30 mins before you open the jar. Stops condensation.

Pumpkin 25 May, Holly (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hi, I'm wondering if pumpkins can be planted now on a hot western slope in nth new? Yes it's late! Just wondering!
Pumpkin 26 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Read the article here and get as much info as possible to make a decision. We are about 5 weeks away from the coldest period of the year July August, most plants do not grow much during these months. Generally give the hottest and coldest months a miss. Advice here is they need 20-30 temp to germinate, my soil is currently 18, Bundaberg. It says plant from August. I suggest you wait until then and find a warm area to be able to germinate the seeds or buy seedlings. There is a reason why you plant at the correct time, you have a better chance of a successful crop. Start preparing your ground if it needs it.
Strawberry Plants 25 May, Maria Garreffa (Australia - temperate climate)

Suggest you do some research on the internet about that.
Garlic 25 May, Jon Hosford (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Garlic is best planted before the extremely cold weather sets in so that it can sprout and grow healthy leaves. It will then use this solid start to set healthy bulbs in the spring months. When tops start to flag, cease watering. Pull the garlic when the bulbs are strong and healthy and allow the leaves to die right back before storing. I live in a cool climate (Tasmania) and am able to keep garlic without it sprouting for use in cooking until July/August .

Amaranth (also Love-lies-bleeding) 19 May, Pat obrien (Australia - tropical climate)
Is there a variety of amaranth that could be more suitable for growing in the cooler Months in the tropics?
Amaranth (also Love-lies-bleeding) 21 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Further to yesterday's advice. You could go on the internet and spends hours trying to find your answer. I have never seen it or grown it. Best to ask some flowering society or agricultural dept. From my knowledge and experience most plants need a certain temperature range to germinate and then temperature range/climate to grow. That is why some plants are recommended to grow in spring in some climates and other climates it might be summer or winter.
