End Of Summer Garden To Do List For A Bountiful Indian Summer This Autumn
- For February to April, most of the country has close to equal chances of above and below median rainfall. Below median rainfall is likely (greater than 60% chance) for parts of western and southern Australia while above median rainfall is moderately likely (around 60% chance) for small parts of eastern Australia.
- February to April maximum temperatures are likely to very likely (60% to greater than 80% chance) to be warmer than median for large parts of western and southern Australia, Tasmania, eastern Queensland and the northern coastal areas. Below median maximum temperatures are likely (greater than 60% chance) for the central coastal areas of New South Wales.
- February to April minimum temperatures are very likely (greater than 80% chance) to be warmer than usual across most of the country.
- This forecast reflects the status and outlook for several climate drivers, including La Niña and warm ocean temperatures around Australia.
Warm and wet conditions will mean abundant growth in the garden, an accumulation of green moss in hard surfaces, and even the washing away of sand under paved areas as fast and hard rainfall filters through the earth. You will need to lift these and install some more sand and tamp it down before replacing the pavers.
If there is a buildup of moss or green over hard surfaces now is the time to get a yard broom out or a water pressure cleaner onto clearing this away before more rains cause more to build and make these areas places where people may slip and fall.
If your gutters are full of just fallen gum leaves, now would be a great time to clean them out before Summer rains cause an overflow and flooding around the base of your home. Trees adjoining the house that may be funnelling water into the home should also be trimmed back to prevent dampness.
This Issue a few tips on what you can do now to look after your outdoor areas as we head into the warm steamy end of Summer and what sounds to be a predicted Indian Summer conditions.
Weeding and Dead-Heading
Weeds are at their most prolific in the last month of Summer - many have taken a firm hold. As Summer sets in weed seeds become well established and their plants flourish in conditions less suited for vegetables and flowers. Staying on top of your weeding—this month especially—will deter new weeds from seeding themselves, allowing fewer of them to propagate next year.
Fast and Easy Weeding Tips
- The most important rule of weeding: Don't leave the roots behind.
- Weed after it rains.
- If there's no rain in sight, water your garden and start pulling.
- Keep a garden fork or trowel in your pocket so you can attack baby weeds the minute you spot them.
- If the soil is dry, or if your weeds are too small to pull by hand, use a hoe. Keep the blade sharp for a fast cleanup in large areas. Pick the right hoe. Hoes with triangular blades are good for closely spaced rows and underneath plants. Scuffle or loop hoes are pushed and then pulled back over the soil, doing double-duty as they scrape.
- If weeds are shooting up between pavers or in the cracks of a driveway use an old screwdriver to pry them out.
- If you can’t get weeds up by their roots, chop their heads off every now and then. That will prevent them from setting seeds, and with any luck, they’ll eventually die.
- Use mulch with a weed preventer mixed in. Some products keep weeds from germinating for up to six months. By then, you’ll probably need to add more mulch anyway.
- Bare spots encourage weeds to move in, so space plants as recommended on their tags or labels. Mulch unused beds, or sow a cover crop at the end of the season.
Stay on top of the deadheading too, to keep perennial gardens and annual pots looking their best. Pickoff old, spent flowers to allow for healthy new growth and buds to form. Keeping up on this task forces ever-bearing plants to keep producing flowers. If you have a perennial that is just plain unruly, pinching it's flower heads prevent it from seeding and out-competing the other plants in your garden.
Harvesting and Clearing Space
Harvest time is certainly the most awarding season for vegetable growers. While your lettuces and radishes may be passed, tomatoes and squashes are just getting going. Harvest ripened vegetables like cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, and cabbages, too. As you pick your above-ground plants, more vegetable flowers will form to be pollinated. And thinning your root vegetables allows those beside it to grow bigger, while also allowing you to get a jump on your food storage practices.
The end of Summer can turn any landscape (edible or not) into a mess of falling, brown plants trying for one last round of blossoms. Removing their browning portions creates less garden cleanup work later in Autumn. If your clearing efforts go overboard and whole plants need to be removed, make sure to fill in empty spaces. Use mulch, layer gardening techniques, cover crops, or even Autumn plantings to eliminate weeds.
If you live in a zone suitable to Autumn gardening, now is the time to get things started. As days get cooler, kale, lettuce and spinach will grow quickly and complete their harvest before the cold weather arrives. Sow seeds directly into the ground, cover them and keep them soaked to encourage sprouting. If you live in a hardier zone that stays warmer longer, beets, radishes, broccoli, and cabbage can be sown from seed, as well. Even if you can’t get more vegetables in the ground, consider planting a cover crop to keep the soil loose, prevent weed build-up, and restore depleted nutrients to the ground.
If you live in a flat and only have a limited balcony space, it doesn't mean you cannot put in some Autumn veggies - jsut get a good put to suit the size of space you have and use a good made-for-purpose potting mix and have a go. Please remember to wear gloves and a mask when handling potting mixes.
Preparing Mulch and Compost
If you haven’t created one already, a DIY compost pile or bin is a quick, easy and simple weekend effort that will yield excellent returns. Add organic materials like rotted vegetables, plant scraps, and leaves to create a mulch pile that can be used as compost at a later date. By the time the last of the harvest is gone from your garden, your compost and mulch will be ready to spread, enhancing the growing spaces for next year.
Maintaining Shrubs and Trees
If you have shrubs, trees, or other perennials, it's TLC time! Don’t deadhead or fertilise anything that won’t make it through the cold months ahead, as now is not the time to encourage new growth. Simply prune them back, as needed, once the blooms are over. For shrubs and trees that are still going strong, provide deep drinks of water, especially in hot climates. Late Summer sun can still evaporate any light watering efforts, so make sure you give your plants a good dose early before the sun may scorch any water left on foliage or an hour or so before sunset, so water doesn't sit on plants overnight and cause plant or root rot.
This is a great time of year to be in the garden - install a swing for the youngsters, a bird bath for local birds or a pond for those that are closer to the ground, harvest your Summer crop and get ready to plant out what you will grow in later Summer and Autumn, and enjoy a cooling drink and seabreeze in a shady corner on your own garden bench before an evening barbecue - bliss!
