Re: Grow Birdhouse Gourds

Hello gardeners, Is the color of the birdhouse just a result of the shellac used? It's beautiful! I grew them succussfully last year and have a woodshed full.
I used a dremel for holes. A word of caution regarding the mold. YOU DO NOT WANT this mold dust (wicked fierce spores) in your house or around loved ones! Use gloves in a well ventilated area for that part of the process. It can be highly toxic. I left some of the stem on for hanging but a couple holes sounds somewhat more wind proof. Thanks for easy reference hole sizes.
