Is there a system in Holland where it is cheaper to run electrical things such as the dishwasher/washing machine at night so it is cheaper?

We have fallen in love and are just about to put in an offer on a house with a thatched roof, does anyone have any experience of this, is it expensive to maintain, fire risk etc.. All help appreciated, only have until the weekend to decide!

I have just moved into a house with a shady garden. Are there any green fingered people out there who can tell me which plants would do well?

Hi, I am here with my husband on a 2 month sabatical here for the Internatonal Law Courts. I am from the USA and I have so many questions for you guys out there! To start how do all the different garbage bins work and what does each colour bin represent?

I recently bought a second hand under-counter Bosch fridge. Its very good, but it does smell of liverwurst, I think I made a mistake buying it from from a German lady. Can anyone suggest ways in which I can de-liverwurst it. I've tried bleach, washing-up liquid and bi-carb but the smell persists. I recon she must have had sausage in there since she first bought the fridge. Any ideas will be tried and reported back. Thanks in advance.Hank

I have a large family and work full time. Some of my neighbours have mentioned it is possible to hire a polish or chech housekeeper for a reasonable price. Is this true? Would I have to pay minimum wage? They said not but I think they could be employing them illegally.?

I am about to rent a house for a 2 year period starting in the spring. We have a small and functional kitchen but the second time I went back to look at the house I realised there is no oven! The estate agent told me that this is not uncommon in Holland, a lot of kitchens come with out an oven! Do they not cook?

This is the time of year when I am so inspired by all the wonderful flowers and bulbs on offer to us! I would love to know if there is somewhere I could go to learn how to recreate these spectacular flower displays we are surrounded by.Doris

Does anyone know what the rules are regarding trees in town gardens? There is a huge tree in our neighbours garden , it is higher than our house and cuts off a lot of light.Also on the other side we have Leyladi trees that are straggly and need pruning back . I don't want to fall out with all my neighbours but am interested to know what can be done!!Joan
