    "The answer is in the way you've sown it. If its patches I would recommend the old way which is use string and silver trays something like Chinese trays. If you've done it with a machine then they would only get the over spill"

    "Theres not a lot you can do about that, to be honest I would suggest keep applying more seed until it starts to take!"

    "You can use netting to put over the area you have seeded, plus you can use windmills to scare the birds away because of the noise."
