As soon as my Red Hot Poker plant starts to flower, it is invaded by Blue Tits. They pull out the yellow flowers at the bottom of the flower until nothing is left. Any ideas please to discourage them?



i don't think you can discourage them.that was all i grew mine for. they are fasinating to watch.

Maybe if there is a feeder with sunflower seeds near by they won't bother with your pokers? There a lots of blue tits around us but never touch them......too busy feeding.
