Had some damaged cherries this year found this happened over night just before they are properly ripe after  two nights got fed up with more damage so removed rest of cherries they are nearly ready have enjoyed a good few. I suspected mice but have no hard evidence of the culprut ,very keen bird feeder just next door?best way of ripening anyone apart from leave on tree?

I let the dogs out if one is visiting my plot and also if handy use the hose they still persist so I mainly net off anything I hope to eat , as for a device I think you would need something to cover a large area. Most of my neiboughs have cats so theres often anew one around so just have to live with it.I'll have a look at the defender on amazon as at £20  is worth a go for a result.

Hi all,

Bought one of those cheap walkin green houses just got seeds going well then despite beening well wieghted down growbags etc the latest wind had other ideas, the plastic fittings corners and apex snapped wrecking the structure, have used gaffer tape and saved most seedling to main glassgreen house.

question anyone know of some better fittings or cheap spares or is it best to forget the whole idea even though it worked well with propergating ?
