One to one French tuition

Can anyone recommend a French (preferably native) teacher who offers 1:1 classes. I've just come back from 2 weeks of intensive French as part of a holiday in Guadeloupe and want to keep up the progress. I'm south of Perpignan near St Cyprien. Many thanks for any recommendations!

Compost/muck/manure

Fertiliser/engrais - rabbit, sheep or hen?

Experience with double glazing companies

We are having to replace our patio doors following the strong winds earlier this year. I have read one negative comment about AluCatalan. I am now looking at Aluprix and Tryba - a huge differential in price. Has anyone any experience of using these companies? Many thanks

Potager knowledge increase!

Many thanks for the helpful replies posted and particularly the info on garlic. I envy CPB having success with both onions and spring onions. My SO never appeared at all - and they were locally purchased seeds! My successes: courgettes - lots of soup, cake and made friends with loads of neighbours b...

Potager buddy?

Although I know the best advice is to chat with ones fellow gardeners in the potager, I am finding lots of conflicting advice. I would love to chat to fellow Brits about successes and/or failures in their potagers. Any takers?
