Bottles don’t work

I popped to the lottie on my way to work this morning to paint the sweetcorn with chilli and garlic. One of the cobs on the plants with plastic bottles has been nibbled.  So plastic bottles don’t work as a deterrent, not the way I did them anyway, and I’m not that surprised because I couldn’t get the ends into the ground.
Next year I’m going to put the bottles in the ground first, nice and firm, and then plant the sweetcorn in them.
