Designs : Hazel's wired for nuts

Hazel's wired for nuts

IMAGENAMEHERE

In a trial to keep Autumn's HoBB Cobs 'squirrel free', I have wired down two hazel trees to form an arched way under the six female holly trees. [Grid.Ref. J27 : 297 above]

Year on year, all the cob nuts are removed before they ripen by a squirrel we've nicknamed Jasmin, who climbs post wires and navigates hawthorn and holly to reach her tasty pickings.

The arched walkway will give some shade but should allow us to put up some squirrel-proof netting and thus retain some of the hazel cobs. If there is another way you have used, that has worked, please let us know. As there are so many Hazel trees around, we hope to convince Jasmin and her friends to go after the easiest cobs to hoard. If this doesn't work, we'll use 'Plan B', and start training Jasmin to tell us where she's burying her winter store.
