Hi... I notice that you don't recommend planting snow peas in tropical Australia. I live in the Whitsundays and every year when the 'winter birds' arrive I plant snow peas straight into the garden. They are very fast to grow and I get three or four beautiful crops a year by planting about a month apart. This year the birds have come early. The spangled drongo arrived three days ago and he hasn't let me down yet. I hope he finds a nice lady to go out with this year. Cheers

Yes this website is only a guide as they state on the bottom of the page. You have to take your own climate and position into consideration. The only way you find out is to try sometimes.
