A berry good idea

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Gardening -

My cur­rants and berries are start­ing to colour up into de­li­cious look­ing reds and while this makes my mouth wa­ter it also seems to be work­ing on the black­birds. Even my chick­ens have had a go. A piece of net and a cou­ple of stakes can be the dif­fer­ence be­tween a har­vest for you and just a few well fed birds. Build­ing a sim­ple struc­ture will keep the net off the plant and it means you are able to pull the net­ting taut, mak­ing it more ef­fec­tive and less­en­ing the like­li­hood of other an­i­mals get­ting tan­gled up.
