I'm in sub tropical. I have zucchini plants about 4-5 weeks old - planted from seedlings. I have other zucchini plants - from seeds just coming up now. I have the round white cucumbers seeds germinating now also. I have capsicum seeds germinated for 3 weeks or so and they are hardly growing. Temps here in August should be like 10-11 at night and 23-24 in the day. This year we are about 2 degrees above both. Been 28-29 a few days in the last fortnight. Very mild winter. Seeds germinate differently during the year. Quite a few seeds were germinating in 48-72 hrs in early Feb. Now they are taking 7-10 days. All to do with soil temp.

Read the notes about each plant on this website. Different planting times for each.
