If you click the climate zone above and put in Tropics it says Plant May to July. Bunnings usually have crowns from Sept onwards. A hard job to grow from seed in hot weather. Read some of the comments here about growing them. There are only a couple of varieties really grown in Aust - any will do. Look up seed companies for varieties.
