aim to have them in the soil at the start of September that will give you 6months of growth before flowering begins!

sounds like you have a plan know ?? Happy Cultivation

Your so close to the Tropic of Capricorn there you might have a problem with photoperiod plants outside. The nights may not get long enough for them to be in vegetation or short enough for flower mode. Maybe you should just get some autoflower seeds so you don’t have to worry about it. BTW, it’s easy to keep photoperiod plants in veg mode. You just turn on an outside lamp that shines on them for 15 minutes around 11 PM or midnight. Does not have to be all that close or strong. Much harder to force them to flower. They need complete darkness for 12 hours a night. Total darkness, like you can’t see your hand in front of your face. People growing inside report hermies just from power strip glowing switchs!

As long as it does not freeze, temperature is not that important. In Byron Bay, it’s likely to get too hot, not too cold. I have a winter crop just about ready to harvest now and it’s doing fine.

And I would highly recommend cloth pots instead of plastic.
