Thanks Edd and Fruitcake - what is debris netting?

I was given 3 bushes at the end of last year, they were about 6" high and completely bare so I wasn't very optimistic. Now they are covered in new growth and I'm wondering - will I get fruit this year or do I have top wait till next year?

Is 25mm mesh chicken wire small enough to prevent butterflies getting to my cabbages?

If not what does anyone recommend please?

Mine has carried on growing too KT and is now looking quite messy, I'm on well drained ground for the most part - except for the bog at the bottom of the garden that can only be strimmed - so a couple of rainless days and I'll get the mower out then.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Does anyone know when its ok to do the first grass cut? Mine is looking a wee bit shaggy so must be growing even if very slowly. There aren't any frosts forecast so I was wondering whether I could do a cut on the highest setting?

I'll be grateful for any advice.
