I have just had my garden hard landscaped ( I live on the Silver Coast but not on the beach). I need to know what are good plants to put in that will survive well. I will need ground cover, herbaceous/perennials as well as flowering shrubs. As I will be going to the garden centre with the landscaper whose English is limited I need help!! Would appreciate any suggestions, I have seen lovely plants growing almost wild so there has to be plenty to choose from.

I find that mosquitos seem to love the little walkway up to my front door...everytime I venture out I get bitten by one. Are there any plants that repel mosquitos so that I can keep them away from the doorways into my home....I get so fed up with telling the kids, please close the door!!

What makes the UHT milk which has shelf life longer ( for months) differ from the Leite Fresca ( which needs to be consumed within few days ) ? Is it just the technology or the Fresca milk is indeed fresh milk ?
