Mulch the plant well and water with a seaweed solution. Avoid new plantings during a drought summer unless you have a reliable alternative water source. In wet-summer zones, be sure that new plants are well drained. In the middle of the month, after several days of extreme heat (temperatures over 40°C), one night there was a gusty wind change and the next morning a little rain. The heat had damaged, perhaps beyond recovery, the smaller of the two feijoas that were planted in August. All its leaves were shrivelled.

The tropics, for example, encompass the true wet tropics and the dry tropics, which includes places situated in the rain shadow of a mountain range. The tropics and subtropics include such places as Darwin and the Top End, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Broome, Port Hedland, Brisbane and Port Macquarie, with the truly tropical areas being more heavily influenced by the wet, from December to March and the dry, from May to October (roughly). Gardeners here can expect to receive most rain during summer, a little in late spring and early autumn and very little for the rest of the year, depending on the duration of the wet season where they live.

Weeds steal the water that should be going to your desired plants. Pulling weeds is easier after a shower of rain and, if done regularly, need not develop into a major job. Your mulch will also act as a weed suppressant. Tuck weeds under the mulch where they will decompose and add to the soil organic matter, or add them to the compost bin. Deep-rooted weeds such as dock bring up nutrients from deeper in the soil and will release those nutrients as they decompose, to the benefit of your garden. Capeweed and dandelion leaves release useful amounts of nitrogen, but be aware that if you let them go to seed and bury seedy plants in the mulch you will have new weeds springing up.
