The Q&A Archives: Forsythia

Question: I have a forsythia which the birds get into each and winter and spring and ead the bloom buds. So come spring I have no flowers. Is there something I can do to stop the birds? I don't want to harm the birds just stop them from eating the buds.
Thank you for your help,Mary

Answer: Draping your forsythia with bird netting until the buds bloom may be your only recourse. I don't blame the birds, but I do understand your frustration!
