The 'spring garden' is often a brief and fleeting moment in warm climates. It may occur over the winter months or dry season in the tropics or during late winter and early spring in the subtropics. Make the most of the season and have some fun in the garden with some of those traditional spring flowering annuals and vegetables, because very soon the temperatures will start to rise and we will be planning the summer garden and the arrival of the 'wet'.
If you are after a mild moist spring, you might have to move south, as being in the 'summer dominant rainfall' zone of Australia, the likelihood is that the winter and spring months will be dry. It also starts to heat up quite rapidly, so without additional watering many plants will wilt and defoliate.
