Find an old birdcage, of any kind, the more interesting the better.
- Paint it if you want. ( a can or two of a good quality of spray paint )
- Take the bottom out, then place it over your plants!
This cage is an interesting and attractive way of protecting a compass plant ( Silphium laciniatum ). Last year we never saw a full leaf. It’s two years old and has 3 leaves now that it’s no longer fine dining for the bunnies.
