pro­tec­tion for straw­ber­ries

Gardening Australia - - MAILBOX -

My wife and I love the straw­ber­ries that we grow but so do the lo­cal birds. I pro­tect the fruit by mak­ing a cover from the bot­tom half of a 2L milk bot­tle. I punch holes in the bot­tom for ven­ti­la­tion, drill holes in op­po­site cor­ners to hold it to the ground with wire pins and scal­lop out one of the other cor­ners so as to not dam­age the stems. The cov­ers are placed over the straw­ber­ries when they are green. We both look for­ward to the Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia

TV show and en­joy read­ing the mag­a­zine.
