I've inherited a few large plants for my house. Are there any English speaking plant centres or landscapers who can answer some questions about my new plants?

We've bought our containers, soil mix and seeds. How early can we plant things like tomatoes and courgettes? Our terrace gets full sun in the afternoon from 13h onwards.

Would a concrete pool or spa give more service in the Silver Coast area? Clarification: weather, upkeep/maintenance and whatever we decide must be heated due to a health concern and swimming not necessarily what we're after. Looking forward to suggestions.Whatever your suggestion; if you know of someone providing installation and service, please also provide those details.Many thanks.

Hi, I live in Seixal, near Areia Branca in an apartment, and want a Wind Break installed on the Balcony, so that we can sit outside, if there is anyone that can help me? I have contacted local Builders but they don't come back to me.

We live in Caldas da Rainha and we are considering building a swimming pool. Does anyone have a contact for a good construction company and approximate cost for an 8m x 4m pool?

Moving house and wondering what the usual cost is for a 2 bedroom house for water and electric. We use the washer twice per week and the clothes dryer when we pop off to bed, so after 10PM. Thanks.

Hi Can you help? I'm looking for someone with a van to transport 2 large dogs (they have crates if needed but they can also be packed down). And 2 people with luggage. We will be traveling next week (15th or 16th?) from Lisbon to Madrid, probably mid week starting out early in the morning around 4am (this will need to be confirmed) Would suit a "a man with a with a van" :) Thanks Esme

I have a lovely plant in my yard but notice that there are ants wandering up and down the stems. Noticed what must be aphids and have tried picking them off but they return quickly. What can I use to get rid of them or manage them more effectively?

When we moved over I didn't bring my mosquitos sprays. I see that there are plug in devices that are said to repel these pests. Does anyone know if they work?
