No berries on my rowan trees

Posted: 22/11/2012 at 13:20

i have rowan trees 1 in my front garden and i in my back garden, and this year i have had more berries than ever, the trees where weighed down with them, they are also in heavy poor drain clay soil, i love seeing the blackbirds on them, i would like to know why the birds never seem to eat the berries that have dropped

on their way to garden near you!

hi buzzy-lizzie, i think hawthorne would be a great idea, i should have thought of it myself, right by my house we had an overgrown site that used to be a convent it was full of hawthorn and many other bushes and trees, it was full of birds which would feed in my garden, they have recently ripped it all out to build 2 blocks of flats, so we have lost a lot of the birds, so planting things like hawthorn will hopefully encourage them back, so thanks for your idea
