Can anyone recommend a fitter of sliding door mirrored wardrobes?  They seem to be in most modern apartments here so there must be a company supplying them but I cant find one. Dont say IKEA - I want a company who will come out and give me a quote and deliver and install etc.

I am quite new to this forum but I have read several posts relating to people who have has work done and are recommending them to others. I would like to recommend Sam the Gardener.  He is only a young chap but he was at La Cala Market promoting himself and his services and handing out leaflets of which I took one.  Having spoken to him at the market I was very surprised at what a nice yound man he was.  Having returned home I I decided that I would give him a try.  I have several palms and large hedges that really are getting beyond my control, so I called him and made arrangements for him to come around and sort out my garden. He arrived the next day on his bicycle with his tools, I showed him what I needed doing and that was it, he up the palm tree cutting down the dead fronds and when this was completed he then set about the hedges.  I am a little particular and wanted them cut quite squarely and was very pleased that he listen to my instruction and did just that.  From an unruly mess came a very neat cut hedge. If you need your garden sorting out ready for the winter or have regular work in your garden that needs doing, I would highly recommend this lovely young man. Sam can be contacted on 627832289

I think one of my palm trees is infected with the dreaded palm beetles. I've read that the grubs can be killed with treatment if caught early enough. The tree still looks very healthy so I'd love to save it if possible. Anybody else had this and treated their tree, or know where I can get the stuff, or know of anybody who deals with such things? All advice / info appreciated.

This has not been a good year for growing my butternut squash. Previous years produce averaged about 40 but this year it is just 8. All the seeds for this years crop came from last years produce whereas it was a mix of new/produced in previous years. Is it the extreme hot weather or the seeds?

My current guests get in the pool covered in sun lotion. I have asked them to use the shower first but I do not want to monitor them 24/7. The pool is looking a bit cloudy now. Is shocking the solution?

Much to my Spanish neighbours amazement I have suceeded in growing a mango tree. We live at above 700 metres and he said it would never survive the winter. But after using pipe lagging as a winter jacket for three years I have now been rewarded with mangos. The wind blew two off sadly but there are three left growing nice and big. How do i know when to pick them? I dont want to leave it too long in case they fall but dont want to pick them too early either. Any tips?

Can I successfully grown a butternut squash from the seeds o one I have bought? They seem to grow like weeds in my neighbours garden so I thought I would give it a go. What time of year do I plant them and do I have to do anything special with the seeds?
