    Default How to protect strawberry plants from birds?

    I've decided to plant strawberries this year. The seeds haven't even sprouted yet but I want to know how I should protect the fruit because I know birds are attracted to them. A frame with netting or something? Photos would be appreciated if you care to share your garden :-)

    I know you can get bird netting pretty easily. I think you just lay it over them. I've only grown strawberries once and surprisingly the birds didn't get to them so I never got around to actually getting net!

    Netting's the best way - do you have them in a hanging basket? When we had them, we just cut a hole in the netting and hung it over the basket.
