You need to get the right variety for the situation - whether outside or inside.  Have a look here

They really are very helpful and you can email them for advice.  I have no connection with them other than as a very satisfied customer.

I became expert at siphoning back in the days when I made lots of home made wine - but it takes a bit of practice to do it without swallowing - sometimes I had to walk to pick the children up f rom school rather than take the car

Hello folks   Supper eaten, OH is washing up, I'm on the sofa with a second glass of rosé  

Just been watching Sounds of the Sixties from 1966 - Moody Blues, Paul Jones and Manfred Mann, the Kinks, the Stones and the Pretty Things  They were all over my bedroom wall way back then.  About 15 years ago I actually met Ray Davies of the Kinks as he was star guest for the music festival I worked for - others knew I was a huge fan and we were placed next to each other at a big reception - I was shy and he was shy and we just drank champagne together and we hardly spoke a word
