Birds In My Ferns - Knowledgebase Question

Question by jirvi

I have two boston ferns that hang on my front porch. The problem is I have birds that build nests in the ferns. How can I keep the birds from nesting in the ferns and is there any way to rejuvinate my ferns after the birds have nested in them?

You might be able to protect the ferns by stringing fishing line through them and around the supports for the basket; this should confuse the birds and make the pots seem less attractive. You might also try moving them on a daily basis so they seem less "safe". Rejuvenation would consist of keeping the ferns as healthy as possible and a little time for them to regrow.
