Plant name

Thanks Ellie, Barry and Jeremy for your replies. The person who used to look after the keys to the property told us, after we'd pruned the very overgrown 'hedge' that we could take cuttings etc. but as she's Swedish we got stuck with the language. The plan is to extend the hedge and now I know what ...

Plant name

Thanks for the replies - I think it is probably Prunus lusitania as it is a bit like laurel but may be Choisya ternata. We will be at the villa at the end of the week (hurrah) so will check it out against the pictures/suggestions.

Plant name

Thanks Ellie for your reply.

The property I've recently bought has this plant all along the front behind a wall and I'd like to be able to give it a name. I've bought a book on Mediterranean gardening but can't find it in the book.......

Plant name

Can anyone tell me the name of the shrub often used as hedging, particularly at the front of properties. It has shiny green leaves and small white flowers. I am told that it is easy to take cuttings and grow from existing plants.

thanks

Furniture removal

I need to get some old furniture removed (it's beyond selling etc)and I've been told that the Camara will remove a small number of items from the property (which is what happens in the UK). Is this true? How easy is it to arrange? Presumably the alternative is a skip? I will probably also need to do...

A Rede

If that's the restaurant at the end of all the main 'block' of restaurants on Estrada do Farol on the way up the hill on the left, then the answers 'yes' it was a fortnight ago and busy. I made a mental note that it needed trying out in the future.

Post boxes

Having finally got the keys to the property that I completed on last month, I have discovered that I have a key to a post box in a group by the side of the road (I'm sure there is a name for these but I don't know it). Do I need to tell the correios that I have taken it over from the previous owner?...

Is it easy to find Cozequipa in Lagoa? Their website gives an address but I don't know where the road is and excursions to cvo at the moment sadly tend to be long weekends so the less time spending looking for places the better.

Thanks in anticipation.
