              Net is the only way to go

              Don't do the, grow your own anymore, too busy doing other things

              Used to have 2 each of the following, peaches, plums, apples, pears (nashi), grapes (red n white), olives (1), mandarin, got too much in the end.

              Ex used to have a few vegies growing, all in the name of feeding the growing kids, but that didn't seem to work

              My mother is in the herb society and has heaps of different types if I need one or two

                I was growing Tomatos and onions until I accidentally killed them with Zero.

                Strange thing was the Zero killed all the plants i liked and left the weeds alone...

                    cool thanks for that shane.
                    i also have a couple of alchamy/herbal plants but cannot remeber the exact names of all just their properties. lions tail/mouth ulcers, tricious parintious (spellings is off i think)/detox and i had a catha endulas (khat) as well but that died, better than guranna that stuff. i also have some citrinella plants if anyone wants some, great for keeping mozzies at bay

                      I used to tie plastic bags up in the tree, dad reckoned it kept them away. Didn't seem to be that many eaten when I got to pick them. Hate the bloody sap though makes you itchy as hell.

                        All I know of is bird netting like the others have said.
                        Someone once recommended putting the fruit in brown paper bags so the birds cant get to it, would have to watch out for mould etc. Perhaps some thing similar would work (shade cloth bags)?

                        thankyou, the garden is about 6-9 months old. I have made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot. When I have the hang of growing all of this, crop swapping would be great, everything is looking a bit sorry for itself atm

                          That's quite a fruitbasket.

                          I was looking to do strawberries aeroponically in the near future as I have not seen a decent strawberry in about six years.

                          Blackberries would be hating the heat lately wouldn't they? An old duck my mother knew used to grow them and I remember her having trouble in heat above about 32 degrees.

                          I wouldn't mind a decent orange tree - last one got cooked by lightning. Necatrines would be good also. Other than that, my gardening kung-fu is weak. I "prune" well, but I don't enjoy the act of gardening as such.

                          What is best in life? Troll the forums, see the threads derailed before you and hear the lamentations of the moderators.

                            that's funny, i kinda figured you for being quite the gardener, specialising in herbs... or one particular "herb" at least
