Possum prevention

I’ve had to take preventative measures to stop the local possum family from marauding through my little garden and snacking on everything, including flowers…they loved the violas! So the garden is now covered with a large tent like sheet of bird mesh, supported by a small tough willing bush in the centre. It seems to have worked. Now the garden has a very strange appearance, like some ghostly apparition in the evening light, but at least I can pick salad items and not be disappointed. We love our native wildlife but sometimes it can be really annoying!

    1. You would have o’possums wouldn’t you? We have marsupial possums here, with pouches; quite a different species….but I’ve heard that your possums are troublesome too!


Let me know what you think.
