Stop Pigeons eating your crops!

June 4th, 2011 Posted by Mr M. Waller

One of the major problems we have found in the Rosehill Allotment is that the local pigeons like to come and eat our plants that have just started growing. But we have found a solution! If you put some old twigs in the ground and wrap brightly colour tape/fabric around them it really scares the birds away! We also decorate old pots and put them on sticks so they rattle in the air.

However, we have discovered that this still does not stop our friendly blackbird from coming to eat the worms in the garden!
