Got up this morning and found my entire collection of Heli smashed along the floor of my greenhouse! Some had been uprooted from their pots and several are without growing points now. I had suspected birds when I saw a couple of younger plants outside their pots near the open door of the house. But the chaos inside made me wonder whether it was the neighbours dogs or some other animal. But think a bird(s) flew into the greenhouse and panicked trying to get out.
Been growing in this house for 15 years with the door left open in the summer without an issue- closed at the moment. Guess that netting will be the best solution.
Only just watered and cleaned up yesterday and they were looking really good! Repotted all I could and hope the ones with no growing points eventually resprout.
Some neps were dragged over as well but they are more built to survive that kind of damage.
I have had this issue with birds using compost for nesting material with plants grown outside and finding VFTs outside their pots. Had not expected this in the greenhouse. A bit depressed....
