I want to plant some small trees in my garden but I need something that doesn't grow so much and doesn't create so much litter. Any experts in this area could suggest the right tree? siMpAtIcA

Is it ok to use tap water for watering plants. Someone told me not to as it kills the plants or were they winding me up? SPB

Hello, my husband and I are moving from the US to Portugal. He is Portuguese and speaks excellent English as he lived in London for 5 years. He currently works as a handyman here in the U.S. and would like to know if the Anglo community in Portugal have difficulty finding English speaking handymen while in Portugal. We're just trying to find out if this is the type of work for him to continue doing when we move. If anyone has any information, we would greatly appreciate it. Also if anyone knows the average hourly rate handymen charge in Portugal, that would be helpful as well.

Does anyone know the Portuguese for this as I'm trying to avoid buying anything that has this 'poison' in it, after reading all the recent reports about it. It may be the same in Portuguese, but I'm not sure. Thanks

I need to buy a new bed (140x190cm) — reasonable quality but nothing too fancy. Are there any good shops in or near the centre of Lisbon (I'm in 1200) preferably with a wide range readily available in stock (I'm not interested in IKEA because all their beds are at least 200cm in length) ? spyderman

Looking for a reliable painter/handyman in the central Lisbon area (I'm in 1200). I don't speak Portuguese so he should preferably speak some English or French. Kindly note that I'm expecting to pay the average local rate so no time wasters please ! Thanks spyderman

Im just wondering, what exactly is a cheese cloth ? I saw it being wrapped around a turkey on tv. It kind of looks like a diaper cloth to me.If you use it to wrap a turkey dipped on a wine and butter, would it not burn if you put it on the oven ?
