Create A Personalised Vegetable Gardening Cheat Sheet With This Online Tool

Vegetable growing charts and infographics are handy for both beginner and seasoned gardeners, but planting advice can also depend on where you live. This interactive tool creates a customised chart based on your inputs.

The tool comes from Good to Be Home, which previously provided a similarly useful chart based in the UK. With their new tool, you choose your country (including Australia), select what your area's climate is like during growing season (e.g., arid and hot or hot and humid), and where you plan on growing your vegetables (greenhouse, patio garden, plot garden, and/or indoors).

With those three answers, the tool generates two cheat sheets: one with growing instructions and another with a growing calendar. Handy! You can get printer-friendly PDFs emailed to you from the site as well.

You can check out an examples below. Head to the site to generate your own!

    Just another US article that is totally useless in Australia.

      Ok I'll qualify the above comment. I jumped to the above conclusion after looking at the included graphic. It shows a chart based on US seasons. So I didn't bother reading the article.
      I now can see that it is possible to localise the service on the website.
      So my question is now "Why not include a chart based on Australians seasons?"
      Oh wait... I can answer that.... lazy or non existent journalism!

        Hmmm let's see... from the top we have the title... yep... then a bunch of circles... uh-huh... oh, what's in that first one on the left?

          Ah ha.... so I see my comment has prompted them to update the graphic. Well done Lifehacker!

            Not sure how that would be possible - the original US image was changed over before the article even went live.

    This has almost no information for australia the website is supposed to offer fruit, bulbs, vegetables ect but only offerscabout 6 different varieties of vegetables and nothing else, just blank charts

    I live in the tropics and am therefore rooted (ba-dum-tiss).
