Plague and Pestilence

Human beings aren’t the only ones suffering from a pandemic in recent years. Lanzarote’s plants have also experienced waves of plagues recently. We look at the worst culprits and what you can do about them...

Success with Succulents

Succulents are all over the place on Lanzarote, hardly surprising for a diverse family of plants that have evolved to withstand the most extreme conditions of drought and heat. Almost every Lanzarote gardener ends up falling in love with these tough, weird and wonderful plants.

Some like it hot and bubbly

Imagine sipping a glass full of chilled Lanzarote wine while watching the sun setting over this beautiful island warmly ensconced in your bubbling outdoor hot tub. With some expert help or DIY know-how you could be splashing out on one for real, read on.

Watch, learn and act

We’re now in one of Lanzarote’s coolest and most unstable months, when the weather – although usually fine – is most likely to take a turn for the worse.

Living with Animals

Hairs all over the carpet or the sofa, chewtoys or balls lying around where you least expect them, scratchmarks on the doorframe and stains on rugs or carpets marking the scene of ‘little accidents’ in the past – living with a pet is a challenge for even those who aren’t particularly houseproud, and can drive you nuts if you are. However, many of us understandably feel that a house is not a home without a four-legged friend.

Welcome home!

We all know the Canaries are naturally welcoming, but shouldn’t you make sure your home strikes joyful notes in your heart every time you arrive there, too?
