Reader’s Quick Tip

Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters -

AS the whole plas­tic is­sue is very much theme of the day, here is a top­i­cal tip. With the straw­ber­ries ripen­ing and the birds be­ing all too keen on them, here is a use for those plas­tic clam shell type pack­ag­ing boxes that cakes and pas­tries from the su­per­mar­ket come in.

As a nice bunch of straw­ber­ries come to ripeness, pop them in said pack­ag­ing while still at­tached to the plant. They ripen whilst be­ing pro­tected from the rain and the hun­gry birds. Steve Wade, Shrop­shire
