Hot steamy summer weather means we want all the windows open to let every cool sea breeze through, especially at night when the daytime temperatures have cooled down. There's a few tips and tricks you can try by
Unfortunately humid weather also means lots of fly and mosquitoes activity, and that persistent whining buzz won't let you sleep or means you may wake up with those itchy bites. Knowing how to build or fix a flyscreen at this time of year becomes a good DIY skill to have. There are also plants you can place in your garden that will reduce the amount of insects you don't want and encourage those you do.
To set you up for a great Summer in your garden and within your home, this Issue we run some our tried and tested with great results DIY projects you can do.
The other focus of hot weather is how to look after what grows in the garden so that it thrives. Watering of an evening or early morning so hot sun doesn't burn leaves during daytime is a practice most gardeners follow.
What about that lawn or that tomato patch though - what should we doing during these weeks to maintain these or protect them from a too intense sun so our green spaces stay green without using too much water and how do we shield that summer veggie crop?
How and When to Water
What you want in a healthy plant is deep root penetration, and the only way that you’re going to get deep roots is if there is water down deep they're reaching for. When you do water, make sure that you get the soil saturated enough that the moisture percolates several inches down.
Some gardeners state that the best time to water is during or immediately after a rainfall, especially if the rain shower amounts only to a 5 centimetres or so of water. The reason for this is that you want to add sufficient water at the same time to ensure penetration down to 12-14 centimetres (5-6 inches). If you wait a day or two to water after a rainfall, you will be adding only surface water, which evaporates rapidly. With only frequent or light watering (or rain showers), a reserve of water in the soil will not build.
For the lawn watering for longer periods of time less often will promote deeper roots, greater drought tolerance and less maintenance. Watering your lawn in the morning when it is cool to allow more water to soak into the ground rather than evaporate is recommended by landscape gardeners and 2-3 times a week should suffice. Avoid watering in the evening to prevent fungus and disease.
There are also some excellent products available that can help your soil with retaining water.
Temporary wilting during the heat of midday does not mean that it’s time to water. Some plants will go through a midday slump, which is an indication of the plant’s natural adaptation to its environment. Take a look at how they are in the early evening and most of those wilted plants will have regained some turgidity. If they have come back do not water them unless they're due via your watering routine. Most vegetable gardens will need a frequent dousing during midsummer and possibly more if it has been very hot and there has been no rain. If you must water in the later afternoon do so at least a few hours prior to dusk so the water will not be sitting there overnight.
The average amount of water a tomato plant will require each week during Summer is around 3 litres twice a week - a good soaking. Vine plants such as peas need 3.5 litres twice a week whereas cucumbers will require just 3 litres over the week.
When deciding when and how often to mow the rule is to follow what the lawn is doing and if growing more in hotter weather then more mowing is required but don't cut more than one third of the leaf blade. Cutting your lawn too short can damage it.

EARTHCORE 7.5M SOAKER HOSE $9.99; Ideal for spray pattern sprinkling or soaking. Also available: 15m - $16.00
Some Plants May Need a Little More Shade
Most vegetables love the sun and require between six and eight hours for good growth but too much can cause problems. Installing a shade cloth will help them cope with hotter conditions, especially in the afternoon. Tomatoes are also one of those Summer crops that should be watered in the morning as evening watering will promote disease.
There are also some plants that like a little shade to begin with, so if you have a corner of the garden that only gets limited sun, plant out leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach and pick by the leaf outwards to inwards so you can continue to harvest from those plants all season long.
When to Pick that Summer Crop
Bigger is not always better when it comes to deciding what to pick and when. Most vegetables will taste best before they grow too big. For example, zucchini are best picked when they are half a foot long. They’re still good later, but they have hit their peak ripeness and their flavour will start to deteriorate the larger they get.
Not all fruit and vegetables are harvested the same way. For example, pears are picked when they are still hard! Tomatoes can ripen on or off the vine.
Take care not to yank the fruit or vegetables when picking so as not to damage what is still growing. Hold the stem in one hand and pick with the other. If the crop is ripe but doesn’t easy pull by hand (such as an eggplant), use pruning shears.
Once a crop starts producing, check the garden every day! Picking vegetables as soon as they are ripe often encourages the plant to produce much more. If you leave some too long they will bolt and flower as they “think” they’re done.
For your herb crop, pinch or cut back these frequently to keep them productive (and to keep them from flowering).
You can always preserve an overly-abundant harvest. For example, green beans can be blanched in boiling water for one minute, cooled in ice water, and frozen. Zucchini and squash can also be frozen too.
Summer is all about citrus and February is an ideal time to feed your citrus trees - a Complete Citrus Food is best at this time of year. Keep citrus trees well watered when young fruit is forming in spring and early summer. A good watering twice a week to deep water trees in the warmer months is best.
Grass and citrus don’t mix so keep the area beneath your citrus free of grass and weeds. Cover with a mulch such as lucerne, composted leaf litter or compost, but keep the mulch away from the tree trunk to avoid collar rot.
Experienced gardeners recommend you do not harvest any fruit from these trees during the first three years of growth, so
Sour oranges may be caused by harvesting the fruit too early (leave fruit longer on the tree) or insufficient sunlight (it may be necessary to replant your tree in a sunnier position or remove surrounding growth to allow more sun to reach the tree particularly in winter).
Fruit that tastes sour may also be nutrient deficiency; treat the soil around the tree with a matchbox-full of copper sulphate.
Yellowing leaves in the centre may be an indication of magnesium deficiency. Treat the soil around the tree with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). Leaves that yellow at their tips can indicate a lack of fertiliser (use a complete fertiliser).
Dropping fruit can be caused by strong winds during flowering or shortly after while fruit is forming or too much water or too little when the tree is flowering or while fruit is forming. To remedy this, check drainage if soil too wet, or put the sprinkler on twice a week to give adequate water.
