Leftover Xmas cake, Donutmrs! I have just put three ice-cream 2litre carton boxes filledwith delicious soup made from leftover turkey in the freezer but the cake was well laced with brandy so will keep till I demolish it or visitors do, thiough they may be few and far between if the weather deteriorates any more. As for alstromerias, I believe they need an acid soil which we do not have in Bristol so i would need to grow them in pots. I did have some in a red and white bouquet for a present for Xmas and had to compost them just yesterday so, even in winter they last a long time as cut flowers. They come from Chike so we should be growing them when we start our Northern Chile garden at the Bristol Bot. garden.
