I live in Stanthorpe, Qld. What zone am I?

I am a first time gardener and not sure on what flowers or vegetables to plant for my zone.

Answer: Hi Emma,

Stanthorpe is very cool in Winter with frosts and so I suggest you choose the cool zone. Many of the deciduous fruit trees such as apples and pear will grow well in your area. On the back of the Yates seed packets there are areas marked which best suit certain seeds. The cool zone stretches all the way from Victoria up into the inland areas of NSW and Qld near Stanthorpe. Enjoy your home grown vegetables this year.
