Help! Grannies are eating my strawberries

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 19:22

Hi Shedman - the grannies (love it) won't be the main culprits as their mouthparts are too weak to bit into an intact strawberry - what they'll be doing is 'sucking' on places on your strawberries that have already been attached by slugs or birds.  

If you can stop the slugs and birds etc the grannies will leave the strawberries alone.

I can remember hearing that glow worms eat snails - but I don't think they make holes in the shell

How often do you buy seeds and it's NOT what the packet said?

Has to be the compost then BB - at least it was a plant seed and not a lump of wood, glass or worse that others seem to be finding in their compost these days

I'm pretty certain that it will have been in the compost, or somehow it blew, drifted or was carried to your seed tray!

Yes, absolutely fine to plant them in the borders - I usually let them dry off in the mini greenhouse and plant them in the garden in the autumn.
