SWD and berries
I lost all of my blackberries last year to SWD. Hoping to avoid that this year.
My bramble patch is against the garage and I'm not sure how easy it will be to fully net. I was wondering if it would be viable to create little net bags of gardening fabric or tulle (is tulle too wide a netting for these buggers?) and cover the berry clusters themselves, loosely but well sealed off.
Obviously more work, but would it keep them off? Or would they be able to lay eggs through the netting?
My potted blueberries didn't have them last year, but if I had them in one crop, should I be paranoid about another?
