I recently purchased gem squash seeds. I live in Townsville and was just wondering when would be a good time to plant them?

Seeing they are a squash I would presume you follow the guidelines for them. You are tropical zone and it says plant from April to Sept. Generally wait until the heavy summer rain season has eased off. I good idea is to look up when to grow something before buying the seeds / seedlings.

If you follow the planting guide for zucchini/courgette for your zone, you should be successful
