Silver Princess not flowering

Postby ymfoster » Sat Apr 26, 2014 11:04 pm

I've had my Caesia 'Silver Princess' about 5 years now & it only had about 3 flowers last year,

I suspect Rosellas or lorikeets may be eating the buds as they start to form as I saw some early one morning eating new growth,

any ideas on deterrants please, ?

I've said it before and I'll say it again... 22 semi auto or 12 gauge. If you're in the suburbs an air rifle or ging. Permanent deterrent:)

Thanks Hortmaster, :)

I was hoping for something less drastic, :)
