Hi! Wondering if it’s too earlie to plant giant Russians , I’m just north of Byron bay in the mountains, nights are still getting below 10 degrees and the soil in my garden is red clay type soil mixed with soil improvers, too cold still?

I'm sub-tropical and I have seeds germinating now (night temps av around 9-10 (7-14) and day temps around 23-24 (21-28)). Hold off for another week or two and then give it a go. We may have another cold period before winter is finished.
