  1. Many of those won't do well in this climate. I 've tried literally dozens of plants-from cashews to olives. The cashews did well at the coast.
  2. Another interesting tree is the Tabachin-pinnate leaves with yellow or red flowers. They used to have some outside the ajijic hospial. Not too large a tree but colourful
  3. Another favourite tree is the Arco iris (Idon't know the latin name).It is a medium sized tree with interesting leaves. They flowers change colour during the day. Red to yellow or vice versa.
  4. One of my favorites is the Pata de vaca (because of the shape of the leaf) https://www.google.ca/search?q=pata+de+vaca+tree&newwindow=1&sxsrf=ALiCzsavuHOZ7mVdirz435KkpyONkWLCcA%3A1658798534343&source=hp&ei=xkHfYqi-EJ_ZkPIPxJmsWA&iflsig=AJiK0e8AAAAAYt9P1ktRCNue6BCxWvcNxtmsa4OfJNar&oq=pata+de+vac&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYADIECCMQJzIFCC4QgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDoECC4QQzoLCC4QgAQQxwEQ0QM6CAguEIAEENQCOgsILhCABBDHARCvAToKCAAQgAQQhwIQFFAAWKIkYII_aABwAHgAgAG3AYgBwQqSAQMzLjiYAQCgAQE&sclient=gws-wiz The leavas are a beautiful green that I painted most of my ironwork to match. It is also called the orchid tree because of the shape of the flowers. Mine flowred for up to 8 months of the year. Very little trouble with pests escept for leaf cutting ants which are easy to control as there is a only a single trunk usually. If you look through the Lake Chapala garden guide or flowering plants of the landcape or tropical blossoms of the Pacific or Tropical trees or Major flowerings trees of tropical gardens,or Arboles de Mexico, orTropical trees and shrubs or Jardinera you will see many excellent choices. You may have better luck looking through plant books rather than asking here
  5. I had 18 of those on my property( Mine were a fair bit larger) and would not recommend them. Snakes like to live in them where they eat the young of nesting birds.The dead needles make a pile around the base of each tree where almost nothning else will grow. Boring-no flowers but they do move around in the wind a lot. I have a list of more suitable trees that I will post when my company leaves. A rether pedistrian tree more suitable to northern altitudes.
  6. I just heard that she will be away for another week.
  7. She may be in Spain. Did you talke to one of the assistants? Best to use WhatsApp.
  8. I don't see any flowers. I usually have 2 female dogs.-they pefer to pee on grass-good fertilizer. I had an acre of grass in Richmond BC where there is an excess of water usually. I had large patches of grass in the Raquet Club but my aljibe held over45,000 liters and all watering was done by gravity. No shortage of water and free. It depends on what you like. I like flowers and butterflies. It looks like you don't. Cutting grass and raking is good exercise Even if the grass dries out and goes brown it can still be nice to look at and it gets green again in the rainy season.
  9. Thank goodness that in many areas we can still make proper gardens with grass and florwers-nothing beats them. My dogs love the grass.
  10. Faena Few flowers in your "garden" A neighbour uses cardboard rather than fabric and it seeems to be quite effective.
  11. https://www.google.com/search?q=San+Jorge+104+in+Riberas.&newwindow=1&sxsrf=ALiCzsYaZWrwtfDD4Bn6_JOcOgS1FWoKqg%3A1658616068743&source=hp&ei=BHncYsjvKIyekPIPoNew4AM&iflsig=AJiK0e8AAAAAYtyHFP-w08za7uOYNv7hJMNsleQ5Zk6X&ved=0ahUKEwjIgd6sipD5AhUMD0QIHaArDDwQ4dUDCAc&uact=5&oq=San+Jorge+104+in+Riberas.&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAMyBQghEKABMgUIIRCgATIFCCEQoAEyBQghEKABMgUIIRCgAVAAWABg6SxoAnAAeACAAaYBiAGmAZIBAzAuMZgBAKABAqABAQ&sclient=gws-wiz Across the street(west) from Mom's restaurant. You have the address and phone number right but the name slightly wrong. She usually uses WhatsApp.
  12. To stop from going to DAC rates I had a second meter installed which served the casita and pool and I never pumped water from my aljibe to the tinaco. Garden watering was by gravity from the large aljibe.The tinaco was filled by pressure from the fraccionamiento. My bimomthly bill for the two meters was 800 to 900 pesos for a 3 bedroom house, casita and pool and large garden.
  13. Thee are many places for basic tests. For more comprehensicve test you have ro go to Guadalajara
  14. I seem to recall that you were interested in seeing a neurologist. One is coming out to Jocotepec Monday the 18th to see me and another person. He may have time to see others. cypress Share Holder I didn't realize that you did not use the other Board so now it is too late but the neurologist will return in a few weeks.
  15. I went to buy somehintg for GPS in my car at that Steren store once. The girl let me take the part out for a drive to check it out withour me even paying for it or leaving a deposit. I was impressed.
  16. Depending who waits on you service can be very good to poor.
  17. Mine aren't blight resisent. To combat the blight I sprayed mine witn a mixure of water, neem oil, and dishwashing soap. And then rubbed the wet leaves clean of blight by hand.
  18. The price has gone up a lot. It used to be 300 pesos. 500 is a lot more
