Net Gooseberry Standard
« on: May 15, 2019, 19:53 »
I have a Gooseberry Standard on my patio and last year it gave plenty of fruit to the pigeons.
It looks a bit like the ones in this article.

How do I net it?  Can I just drape the net over it and tie it at the base?  Would this damage it?  Any better ideas?

Hi I have tied netting to blueberry bushes before by using clothes pegs. It allows you to pull some bits tighter without having to actually attach to the bush. I used scaffold netting which doesnt allow birds to get through and doesnt trap them either so think the type of netting is important.
