Protect your Plants: How One Growers Supply Employee Kept his Blueberries Safe from Predators and More!
Today’s blog post comes to us from Carlos C., a long time Growers Supply employee and hobby gardener.
My wife and I are big fans of pick-your-own blueberries and each year we visit the local orchards to stock up. I planted my own blueberry bushes four years ago, along with strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. At the beginning of each season, I would see tiny blueberries growing, but by harvest time they would always seem to disappear. Obviously the local New England birds were “picking their own,” along with the other critters in my neighborhood. Determined to have my own blueberries for breakfast this year, I decided to install some bird netting over the blueberry bushes.
