Re: Safe Weed Killer

As above from Sid but if you go to an Agricultural Merchant, get "Touchdown", it is just as good as Roundup ( exactly the same chemicals) and a good bit cheaper. I buy it in 5 litres for less than 30€ but I am a registered user. It does come in Litre pots as well.

Re: Bird migration this year

It is definitely strange this year; We have one Golden Oriole taking the fruit from our Morus tree, normally they miss the main crop, we heard a cuckoo a couple of days ago but not since. We have no Wheatears, or Shrikes yet and only one pair of Swallows (now with 5 eggs happily). House sparrows are...

The scheme ran for a few years with a local commitee and overseen by engineers from the town and was then taken over by the town hall and inco...

Re: Costa de sol news

They were taken over by a Spanish sounding company some years ago and they have just now decided to close it, presumably falling sales although the Editor did not give an actual reason. It all sounded a bit sad!

Re: The rain in Spain

... is there a grant to plant these trees as it must cost a fortune to set up!) We've often wondered that. They continue to grub out citrus and re-plant with mango/avacados all the way up our valley. There is a chap terracing a whole mountain side to do do the same just down from us, it simply does...

Re: Unbelievable!

Diaphonus in this instance will mean "Trellis Like". In Spain you see many ingenious ways of achieving this; the use of roofing tiles, water pipes and most commonly Slip bricks on end forming triangles trapped between horizontal rows to give stability. It is quite attractive, cast your eye...
