    Sometimes, particularly when your area experiences an uncharacteristically hot summer, extreme weather events can become more common than we'd like. In more

    temperate climates, such a change may not last long and many plants recover quickly

    or suffer minimal heat shock loss. In hotter climates however, an extremely dry sum-

    mer can last many months.

    Evaluate your water use scenario. If there is, or is going to be minimal water re-

    strictions, then the job is much easier, but if you have severe water restrictions then

    protecting your garden may need additional work.

    How to tend to your plants in the hot summer.

    Water saving methods include using mulch - at least a 10cm or 4 inch thick lay-er, using drip system reticulation (which is best hidden under the mulch), using water

    retention products such as water retaining crystals, bentonite or attapulgite clays - the

    cheapest source of these is often clay based granulated kitty litter (if it dissolves in

    water, it will offer even better water retention capabilities), and as much organic mate-

    rials such as compost and other soil improvers that you can budget for.

    Water in the evening or early morning to best avoid evaporation and the water getting

    hot in the sun's rays. It is recommended to water deeply and often but when the water

    supply is low, it is better to water deeply and occasionally, as that encourages deeper

    root growth into cooler (and hopefully more moist) layers of soil. Frequent light water-

    ing encourages lush growth but also promotes shallower roots so that the plant is less

    prepared to cope when there is a reduction or no water coming on a hot day.

    In times of heat shock, a seaweed extract based liquid fertilizer treatment often reduces heat stress and it may help protect the plant in future. Work to in-

    crease shade. This maybe using shade sails, tree cover (selecting more drought har-

    dy trees or palms) or a short term solution using an old sheet or dust cloth during ex-

    treme weather.

    The catch is these will make the plants less sun hardened, so a short term so-lution should only be a short term solution or a more permanent fixture. Short term

    protection should be removed as soon as possible because if the plant gets accus-

    tomed to the shade it will experience more stress when the shade is removed.

    If the future for your area looks to have increased heat and less rainfall, start replacing many of your plants that just will not survive no matter what protection you

    can offer them. This can be done by donating the plants that won't thrive to nurse-

    ries, friends in cooler areas, or to botanical gardens and zoos if they have the envi-

    ronment and facilities for them. Lawn can be replaced slowly by gradually increasing

    the area of garden beds, or by replacing them with artificial grass. The quality of arti-

    ficial grasses has improved greatly over recent years, so is a worthwhile substitute if

    properly installed.

    10 Weeds in 10 Seconds!

    UWI: Tell me Mr. Centrella what is a Stick n Kick?

    Mr. Centrella: The Stick n Kick is an amazing weeding tool that I invented that not only works, but also is

    fun to use, environmentally friendly, and effective at ridding your lawn or garden of unwanted weeds.

    Simply as that.

    UWI: Well, that is great; can it be used on all weeds?

    Mr. Centrella: YES! There is no weed that can stand up to the mighty Stick n Kick, in fact , we even kicked

    out some big old desert weeds in Arizona. It has been tested in all climates from New York to California. If it

    has a roots it is doomed. This amazing tool works on crab grass too, in addition to your regular lawn weeds.

    In fact, it will work just as well in your garden.

    UWI: How does it work?

    Mr. Centrella: Simple as this, you stick the base of the tool in the ground just before the root and give it a

    gentle kick. Bam, the weed, roots and all, flies out. It is as simple as that.

    UWI: How is your tool different from other weeding tools?

    Mr. Centrella: That is a good question. First, these are no moving parts to jam or break. No fuel, electric

    cord of any re-occurring parts needed, and no added hidden expenses. No noise, pollution and, it is envi-

    ronmentally green and safe.

    The term RSVP comes from the French expression "rpondez s'il vous

    plat", meaning; "please respond". f RSVP

    is written on an invitation it means the

    invited guest is welcomed and should tell

    the host YES or NO they plan to attend the

    party or event. It means the host needs a

    definite head count for the planned

    event, which we will address later in this


    ON-line events or in-person events include a tremendous

    amount of decision making and

    planning so YOU can have a great

    experience and this includes all the

    business events we are now invited

    to via a variety of social media sites.

    With all that being said, I was inspired to become part of a solution and motivat-

    ed to write this article. I realized just be-

    cause I have planned events for a living

    does not mean others have or do, there-

    fore perhaps they just dont know what it

    takes. The biggest challenge to providing a

    fabulous event of any kind is to be pre-

    pared and thats where YOU the invitee

    can help by providing an RSVP to the invi-

    tation received.

    One of the challenges that everyone who has ev-er managed events have, is how to motivate people to RSVP

    in a timely manner or to even RSVP at all.

    In a recent conversation, I realized the person I
