Kniphofia

United Kingdom Gb

After many years of perseverance I finally got my Kniphofia ( Red Hot Pokers) to flower. My joy was shortlived, as the birds picked the flowers clean and I was left with a few stalks! Is this common, and is there anything I can do to prevent the little perishers from doing it again?
G'day

Sparrows love Kniphofia. Try growing different variaties, they seem to go more for the common yellow and red one.
