Cannabis Strains to Grow Outdoors in Melbourne

Cannabis Strains to Grow Outdoors in Melbourne

As winter winds down in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s time to start thinking about the imminent growing season. There are many factors to consider when planning your outdoor grow, such as strain choice, timing, location, soil types, and nutrients.

We thought we’d lighten the load for you Melbournian cannabis aficionados by presenting our list of the best weed strains to grow outdoors in Melbourne this season.

What Cannabis Strains are Suitable for Melbourne's Climate?

Melbourne experiences a temperate climate and falls into the Mediterranean zone. In fact, if you flipped Australia into the Northern Hemisphere, Melbourne would occupy similar latitudes to Sevilla in Spain or Athens in Greece.

This gives Melbourne six months of warm weather with more than 12 daylight hours. It is therefore possible to grow almost every strain of cannabis, even Sativa-dominant hybrids, as well as some strains of shorter-flowering landrace Sativas.

It’s even feasible to grow three back-to-back autoflower crops in one season. So, with this in mind, we’ve selected a range of strains to help you make that all-important decision.
