Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.
Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.

UPDATEAntigen Test not sufficient for UK to Spain travel, unless you are a “habitual resident”:
Testing and vaccination requirements for arrivals from the UK: (Lots of contradictory info out there, this is the best I could find. -Ed.)
From 2 July 2021, the Spanish government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK (excluding children under the age of 12 years old) to present on entry one of the following:
-documentation issued within 48 hours prior to arrival in Spain, certifying that you have undertaken a COVID-19 test, e.g. PCR, TMA, LAMP or NEAR, and tested negative. Antigen tests are not currently accepted for the majority of travellers.
-Proof of being fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain (date(s) of vaccination must be specified), with a vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency or by the World Health Organisation
*If you live in England, Spain will accept the NHS COVID Pass or your NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. If you live in Scotland or Wales, Spain will accept your respective NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status. For more details see ‘Entry requirements for entry in Spain from third countries’ – section ‘k.’ on the Spanish Ministry of Health ‘Travel and COVID-19’ page
Then further down it says:
-Entry requirements and the type of diagnostic tests you can present may vary if your reason for travel to Spain falls into one of the categories listed on the ‘Entry requirements for entry in Spain from third countries’ – section ‘a’ to ‘i’ – on the Spanish Ministry of Health ‘Travel and COVID-19’ page. This includes habitual residents of Spain. (Not sure if habitual resident requires a residence certificate? -Ed.) If one of the exemptions listed applies to you, on entry to Spain one of the following can be presented: a certificate of vaccination; a negative diagnostic COVID-19 test (NAAT tests such as PCR, LAMP, TMA etc. or an antigen test) or a certificate of recovery.

The rate of Covid in Malaga is the highest in the last four months: {Translation, summary} Updated: 06 July, 2021 – 13:44
-In the province of Malaga the cumulative incidence (AI) for the last 14 days has risen again by more than 20 cases, after the 50 it rose on Monday, to 267.5 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. This is the highest Covid rate in the province since February 22, when it reached 288.9 cases. This rate is the second highest in the province and places the indicator within the extreme risk for Covid.
-In the sanitary districts of la Axarquía it rises nearly ten points, with 117,5 ; in Costa del Sol increases by more than 20 points, going from 330,6 this Monday to 351,8; as in the district of Malaga , with 273,1 in front of the 241,8 of the previous day.
In Serrania goes up more than 27 points, an incidence of 136,4 is passed to 163,6, and in the Valley of the Guadalhorce exceeds the rate of 250 cases in the past two weeks, with 251,4.
-Therefore, with the current data, the province of Málaga is situated at extreme risk, with the municipalities of Istán (2.075), Serrato (829,9) or Carratraca (1.621), with very high figures.
-The positive note is that there are no new deaths to report, so the count remains at 1,677 since the first death of a Covid patient on 13 March 2020.
-Tuesday, 6 July, 116 people were bedridden in the health centres, 16 more than the previous day, of whom 18 are in intensive care, unchanged from the last day.

New Covid Andalucía measures- open-air catering will be open until 1 o’clock but you can only order until 12 o’clock:
{Translation, summary} Updated: 06/07/2021, 20:36
-The Andalusian Regional Government has decided to extend the coronavirus containment measures currently in force in the autonomous community at the proposal of the Regional Committee of High Impact on Public Health. The only modification agreed, at the meeting held on Tuesday afternoon, was the possibility of closing open-air catering establishments until 01.00 hours in the morning, with no possibility of admitting new customers or service from 00.00 hours onwards.
-The measure, which will be in force for two weeks (like the other restrictions already in use) will come into force at 00:00 hours on Thursday, so it is more than likely that restaurants with outdoor terraces (this nuance is essential) will end their service this Wednesday with the new timetable. However, the new indication has to be previously published in the BOJA.
-He also recalled the prohibition of collective or group consumption of drinks in the street.
-The Regional Committee of High Impact on Public Health will meet in two weeks to evaluate a possible move to the advance phase.

Only five regions in Spain are vaccinating 20-29 age group despite surge of coronavirus cases among youngsters:
Among those aged 20-29, the cumulative incidence is now 640 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – three times the national average, which stands at 204. But despite the surge in contagions, most youngsters must still wait to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Only five of Spain’s 17 regions – Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Navarre and Castilla-La Mancha – as well as the Spanish exclave cities of Ceuta and Melilla in North Africa, have begun to inoculate those aged between 16 or 18 and 29.

Spain drafts legal reform allowing state to mobilize all adults in times of crisis as well as requisition private assets: The draft legislation indicates that all citizens, without exception, must follow the orders and instructions of the relevant authorities if a state of crisis – or “situation of interest to national security” as it is termed in the document – is declared. The reform also states that authorities can temporarily requisition all types of assets, take over or temporarily occupy those that are needed and suspend all activity.
The wording of the draft bill does not specifically mention Spanish citizens, but rather everyone who has reached the age of majority. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/spain/2021-07-06/spain-drafts-bill-allowing-state-to-mobilize-all-adults-in-times-of-crisis.html

New rules which will allow fully vaccinated Brits to return from amber list destinations without having to quarantine will be revealed this week: Holiday destinations including Spain, Greece and Portugal are currently on the UK’s amber list, meaning Brits have to quarantine for 10 days when returning to the country.
It has been revealed that the government want UK travellers who have been double-jabbed to be able to avoid the amber quarantine restrictions.

Self-Isolation Rules Ease as U.K. Faces 100,000 Cases a Day: Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced that from Aug. 16, “anyone who is a close contact of a positive case will no longer have to self-isolate if they have been fully vaccinated.” The same rule will apply to under-18s, who are not currently being vaccinated, he said.
Ending the requirement to send whole school year-group “bubbles” home if one child tests positive will also ease the threat of disruption for millions of working parents and their employers.
Javid also confirmed the government is aiming to remove the isolation requirement for fully vaccinated passengers arriving in the U.K. from medium risk countries.
