Hi, I've bought some 'Cicoria variegated Di castelfranco' seeds and wonder whether it's at all possible to put them in my garden bed now? I'm in Melbourne, and new to growing chicory. Any advice is much appreciated! Jo

If you go to the blue tab at the top of the page called CLIMATE ZONE you will see you are temperate climate. Then go to CHICORY. Look at the planting guide. About SEP TO DEC. Read the notes about how to grow it.
