What temperature should the soil be to plant out tomatoe seedlings in Melboune? It is now Sept 23. Is it too early. Thank you.

You could probably grow tomatoes all year - I do in sub-tropical area even though it says seeds in Aug Sept and seedlings Oct to Jan. This website is only a guide.

The guide above says plant seedlings out Oct to Jan. Your answer is there.

Obviously weather will be a factor, but I've been told by other Melbourne growers after Melbourne Cup for tomatoes.
