I know I know, I live in Spain I should grow my own but I have had real problems and I am often away in the summer so I want artificial that looks real without the hassle. Anyone know any suppliers, and no offence not the Chinese shops! SteveB

I have a really expensive cut glass decanter that I just cant get clean. Its really dull with a chalky deposit. Any ideas? I cant actually get a brush in it or a cloth as the top is too narrow. SteveB

Are there any strains of fruit tree that would grow in a container? Ideally we would like a lemon tree on our terrace, or are we being too ambitious!

This weekend I purchases thee most beautiful fuschia plant. If I was in the UK it would sit happily in the lounge and do OK. However, I was assured by the Spanish lady I purchased from it would be OK in the shade on a patio? Do I risk it, has anyone else got fuschia outside on terraces or patios? I would be very upset to lose it. Bouquet

My vegetable patch is coming along nicely and now turning my attention to plants and flowers. Do you happen to know of a guide to gardening in Spain or could you recommend some plants to grow?

Does anyone have any magic potion that would sort out the water when we have the kids over in summer. It seems to go cloudy the minute the grandchildren get in! SteveB
