I really recommend a great Garden centre on the way into Los Montesinos from the Torrevieja to rojales road. The plants are hardy and such good prices, wonderful yucca's for 2 euros 50 cents. Herbs from a euro just loads of good stuff, its on the left as you drive towards the village. Good service great place they have lots of garden accessories too.

Hi there- does anyone know if you can get grants for installing solar panels. If you can, who do you contact, what is the process and how easy is it. Thanks Tim

I am sure this has been asked many times but 2 of us are moving to SE Spain soon and wondered whether it is best to just get rid of all our furniture and buy new once over there or to store and remove across. We are in a 4 bed house at the moment but are scaling back Is furniture generally cheaper over there. We have a leather suite so would that be worth taking or due to the hot weather be unwise? Any info would be useful.Tim

The house next door to me sold last July and the new neighbours have not yet moved in but have been doing alterations evenings and weekends (the house is only 3 years old and I cannot imagine what they are doing that takes so long). The noise is sometimes deafening with loud banging as as they knock down walls and much drilling which makes my walls shake. As I live on a community I don't want to fall out with these people, but does anyone know the law about building works and noise - such as what time they can start and finish and what about Sundays and holidays?Mari

I have tried to buy some yeast for my bread machine but the translation is levadura and some of this is just simply baking powder. Does anyone know where I can buy quick acting bread yeast suitable for a bread making machine and what is the correct name in Spanish?Dee

I have tried in vain to find an office supplier, I have only just moved to the costa blanca and am so used to using the likes of Staples, Office world, Viking direct for all my office supplies, but it appears there a no such companies here to compare with, I have only found very small retailers that seem to sell a small range complete with bags  or books. I need help anyone out there know of a larger supplier or even an online supplier. Love to hear back on this subject.  From Tracy
