Greetings All,We are kind of new to Tuscany and I am very excited to get ready for the coming gardening season! I am looking for a source of bulk mushroom and or other compost. Is there anyone who delivers for reasonable? I am in the Pisa area. I would love to have someone to talk to who has been gardening here for a while!

Hi all, We are currently living in Brittany, France and we are marketing our house - in which we have lived permanently for 5 years - due to imminent move back to the UK. We have loved life here, but feel the climate is too similar to the UK for it to actually feel like a holiday home once we have moved back, and we are putting out some feelers to see if there is anyone selling their house who may be interested in a permanent property swap/exchange. Our house is being marketed for 167,000 euros.

So, I've found the model I want and several Online retailers sell it. I can't find it anywhere in any "high street" shops. Not one retailer will deliver this 115kg appliance into my apartment, only as far as street level. I'm in my fifties, female and weigh half what the fridge weighs! What am I supposed to do? Is there a secret to this problem? Most of Italy lives above ground level yet no one will deliver anything up stairs. Madness!

Any tips for keeping white clothing white? I don't want to use bleach as it is so harsh on fabric. All my white clothing slowly turns gray in Italy.

I was given a lemon tree a week ago for my balcony. I have planted it in a bigger tub, it seems healthy and then for the last few days the leaves seems to be falling off easily (they arent going brown) and they are curling in on themselves.Any ideas? Am not a natural with plants and would be gutted if I see it off as was a present.

Hello, I am seeking outdoor furniture for a balcony - a few chairs, a table, perhaps a bench. Anything folding would be particularly good. Do you have any you are looking to get rid of?

Hello everybody, next week I will moved from my small flat and I'll spended 3 months in my grandmother's cottage. There is a wonderful vegetable garden and I would use it to learn to cultivate something. What about planting sunflowers? They are my favorite blooms! I've never cultivated anything, so every help will be appreciated :)
