Seasonal overview of Melbourne

Melbourne, Australia, has a temperate maritime climate, which means it experiences mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers. The city’s location in the southern hemisphere means its seasons are opposite to those in the northern hemisphere. Here’s a general guide to growing plants in Melbourne throughout the year:

  1. Spring (September to November)
    • Temperature: Mildly increasing temperatures.
    • Planting: This is a great time to plant summer veggies like tomatoes, zucchinis, and beans. Spring flowers can also be planted now.
    • Maintenance: Fertilize your garden to give plants a nutrient boost for the growing season. Watch out for pests like aphids.
  2. Summer (December to February)
    • Temperature: Warm to hot.
    • Planting: You can plant heat-tolerant veggies like capsicums and eggplants. It’s also a good time for herbs like basil.
    • Maintenance: Regular watering is crucial, preferably in the early morning or late evening to reduce evaporation. Mulch can help retain soil moisture.
  3. Autumn (March to May)
    • Temperature: Mildly decreasing temperatures.
    • Planting: Start planting winter veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach. Autumn is also a good time to plant bulbs for spring flowering.
    • Maintenance: Begin to reduce watering as the weather cools. Collect and compost fallen leaves.
  4. Winter (June to August)
    • Temperature: Cold, with occasional frost.
    • Planting: You can plant winter veggies like peas, onions, and garlic. Many leafy greens can also thrive in Melbourne’s winter.

What to plant in Spring: September to November

Spring veggies in box

Spring is a period of regeneration and tremendous development in Melbourne. The earth begins to warm, and the days lengthen, creating ideal circumstances for various plants. This is an excellent time to plant assorted vegetables, herbs, fruits, and floral plants. However, before you begin planting, you must first prepare your soil. 

During Spring, try to improve soil fertility by adding compost or well-rotted manure. Consider adding gypsum to your thick clay soil to strengthen its structure. A soil test can also be used to evaluate the pH and nutrient content of the soil.

Flowering plants

In our experience, sun-loving annuals are best planted in Spring. Among our favourites, these are the top 5 flowering plants to grow in Spring:

  1. Marigold: These are particularly hardy plants that can tolerate Melbourne’s unpredictable Spring weather. We recommend planting these around early Spring, that way they’ll flower in late Spring and continue through Summer.
  2. Pansy: Pansies thrive in the cooler temperatures of Melbourne’s spring. Additionally, they come in a variety of colours and can brighten up any garden. Similar to the Marigold, plant these in early Spring for a full bloom going into Summer.
  3. Snapdragon: These flowering plants can also survive the colder Melbourne weather while also adding height and a variety of colours to the garden! We recommend planting these around early to mid Spring.
  4. Sweet alyssum: This low-growing plant produces clusters of tiny flowers with a sweet fragrance. It’s great for borders and can handle the varying temperatures of Melbourne’s spring.
  5. Cornflower: Cornflowers are drought-tolerant and can handle the drier periods of Melbourne’s spring, we find as well that their bright blue flowers are a standout in any garden. For this specific plant, we find that planting in Mid-Spring offers the best results.

Ultimate, all these plants flourish in the warmer spring soil and longer days, adding a splash of colour to your landscape!

Summer is an excellent time to plant perennial fruits such as peaches and apricots. They will require frequent watering but will give a magnificent summer yield in the coming years.

Some of our favourite fruits to plant during Summer include:

Companion planting in Melbourne

Companion planting serves many purposes, from deterring pests naturally and improving pollination to maximising space and enhancing plant growth.

In Melbourne, where the weather can range from scorching summer days to chilly winter nights, selecting the right plant combinations can mean the difference between a thriving and struggling garden. This approach not only aligns with sustainable gardening practices but also introduces an element of biodiversity crucial for maintaining healthy ecosystems in our backyards.

Useful combinations to consider

Companion Type Plant 1 Plant 2 Benefits
Vegetables and Herbs Tomatoes Basil Basil repels flies and mosquitoes, may enhance tomato flavour and growth.

Additionally, here’s some actionable tips to work off when implementing companion planting in your Melbourne garden:

  • Start small: If you’re new to companion planting, use one or two combinations to observe how they work in your garden’s specific conditions.
  • Consider spacing: Ensure enough space between your plant pairings to prevent competition for water and nutrients while allowing them to benefit each other.
  • Timing matters: Pay attention to the growing cycles of your chosen companions. Some plants may need a head start before their companions are introduced.
  • Observe and adapt: Keep an eye on how your plants respond to each other. Companion planting can require trial and error, so be prepared to adjust your approach as you learn what works best in your garden.

We can create more resilient, productive, and vibrant gardens by integrating these companion planting strategies. Whether working with sprawling vegetable beds or compact balcony planters, these principles can guide us in making the most of our gardening efforts, fostering a space that thrives in harmony with Melbourne’s natural environment.
