MARIGOLD Magic With their rich yellow, cream, lemon, gold, orange and reddish-brown flowers, marigolds are outstanding plants for brightening any garden and home. They are excellent massed in a bold display on their own, or toned down with other flowering annuals. Marigolds are also popular in the vegetable garden for use as companion plants, because not only does their pungent foliage deter insects, but their roots discourage soil- dwelling nematodes. Marigolds are extremely easy to grow, and can be cultivated almost all year round in warm regions of Australia.

AROUND THE HOUSE KEEP COOL IN SUMMER TIPS FOR ECONOMISING ON ENERGY USE Summertime secrets – water and fresh flowers in a clear vase, an open window and a view to a cooling, green garden. NOW is the best time to get your home ready for hot weather. This doesn’t mean running out the door and buying fans and coolers. What it means is clever ways to keep your home cool and your family enter- tained in summer. ❏ KEEPING COOL If you rely on an airconditioner, have it serviced. If you’re thinking of getting one, do your homework. Many save energy. Install a whole-house fan to save money. ❏ IN THE SHADE: Getting shades, sail and awnings means more comfort. It may be late for this season, but planting trees guarantees shade next summer. ❏ CLEAR VIEW: Many prod- ucts can make your windows more energy efficient. Al- ternatively, get light curtains and breezy blinds. ❏ KEEP THE BUGS OUT: To ensure you don’t have insect guests, install window and door screens. Inspect existing ones for damage. While you have them out, wash them with a little soap and water and rinse with the garden hose. ❏ GARDEN GLORY: Just looking at a garden with its greenery can help you feel cool. Get out of the house and look at your garden and lawn. It is time to clean, trim, fertilise, mulch and germinate.
