I have one bottle of elderberry wine left that I made in 1975!   :P

Having kept it this long it would seem a shame to open it.

Maybe for my 60th next year??

I know Maggi   ;D

It could taste like the finest of aged port    ::)  :P

Or on the other hand it might only be fit for sprinklin' on a chippy tea...... ;D

Diane do you keep the cheese dome up off the soil a little for air circulation? I have thought about doing something similar with the  japanese hepaticas in my garden but thought I would need to let the air get to the plant.

No, I just set it on the soil.

It's absolutely chucking it down again this morning, so I think I will try to protect my most treasured forms of hepatica from excessive wet as well Diane.
