Hi Alan

My measurements were never very accurate but it's about 2lb of fruit and a bag of sugar to the gallon.

Crush the hips and put them in a lidded container (I had a 5gall brewing bucket), cover with boiling water and leave for a day. Next day and the yeast and sugar and anything else that's going in. One of my recipes said an orange and a lemon but I don't think I used them. Mix it all up and leave for a week, then strain into an air-locked fermenter. 

This is the point where all those seeds go on the garden.

I don't like sweet wines, my recipe says 3lbs of sugar but that's too much for my taste.

Enjoy it

Lyn, re the aconitum seeds. Cold is also important. Outside in the shade for now, later in the winter a cold GH or cold frame so you can watch them germinate

Do you want some seeds Philippa? Nice and fresh

Not ripe yet so you'll have to wait.

It might have to be one for a pot and into the cold GH. I can insulate the pot.

I wonder how long I'll wait for flowers. Molly the Witch takes 4 or 5 years from germinate to flower
