Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Rose Trees from England for Sale


For the very first time, we are offering you bare-rooted roses from England - hardy teas, floribundas and climbers. I've personally selected these roses for their wonderful perfume, fabulous looks and strength - and they are all repeat flowering, which means they'll go on giving you pleasure almost throughout the year and for many years too! They're romantic and nostalgic - but they're also practically labelled and you'll get something better than you expect! Few plants give you better value for money.

Because we have ordered them in bulk from England, there is no cheaper way to buy them. Prices: H.T.'s and Floribundas at €4.75 each and Climbers/Ramblers at €6 each for a limited period only.

Spanish Pensioners get Allotments

Green scheme for pensioners
HARD-UP pensioners and the jobless are being given free organic allotments to help them grow their own vegetables.
Twenty plots have been earmarked next to the Guadiar river in Casares, to be handed out to over 65s and the unemployed as soon as the land has been prepared.
Recipients will be encouraged to use traditional methods – without chemicals – to grow their produce.
