Finding that balance
I have taken on an allotment which I am excited about but.....I know there are Muntjac Deer that like to eat people's veg on the site. As well as rabbits and rats.
I want to attract wildlife (birds, butterflies, bees etc) but I want to stop the deer, rabbits and rats from eating what I try to grow.
The site is next to a farmers field so it is quite exposed, gets very heavy frosts and has clay soil. The plot I have has fencing all around it. 6ft fence along the farms field and then 4ft around the other three sides (wire mesh). Can the deer jump this? How do I check if rabbits are getting in and rats?
