Vetiver Spain of Sayalonga:
We have potted Vetiver of different sizes and also in trays of multiple plants that we have grown in our greenhouses for sale. They are more mature plants which will establish quickly in colder climates. They are for pick up only due to their weight. We also have the normal slips available as usual. We can easily ship those if needed.
Check out our new addition of “Buttons” on our home page. They have information on planting, best time to plant, A “Vetiver Introduction Letter” with a load of information and of course more photos and videos related to the use of Vetiver.
The best time to plant Vetiver is between now and the end of March. This way the plant gets the benefit of a long hot summer. Remember that Vetiver is indigenous to India and loves the heat. Vetiver can be planted all summer long.
We are also taking orders for Moringa Trees that we have been growing in the greenhouses. There is a limited supply so place your orders soon. There is also a “Buttons” that will take you directly to the Moringa page or the Lemon Grass page with a lot of useful information. We have put together this information to make it easier for you to research.

Missing Plumber: A plumber from Nerja by the name of Phil R has previously done work for us. However, he has dropped off the radar: WhatsApp messages are marked as sent, but not delivered, sms messages are unanswered and his phone goes to voicemail all the time. He has not responded to emails.
He did say that he was having to move house, but given his record of reliability and punctuality you’ll understand we are rather concerned for his wellbeing.
Does anyone in the area know anything that would set our minds at rest?
