I ordered & received some Yams this week & wondered when is the best time to plant them. We are on the Gold Coast. Many thanks Rachel Rushton

You really are sub-tropical not temperate - it runs all the way down the coast to Sydney, unless you are in the mountains in from the coast. This website says plant by the end of November. It also says grows like potatoes. - a good time to grow potatoes in this ZONE is plant April/May. Try then.
