Last year I had a bit of a disaster with caterpillars eating my cauliflowers. This year I came prepared 💪
I’m growing all my veggies from seed for the first time this year. Usually I’d pop to the garden centre and buy plug plants, but I didn’t fancy braving crowded spaces past February so I stocked up on seed instead. The germination rate was pretty high, and I’d put in extra for the neighbours, so I have a deluge of young plants in my greenhouse at the moment. Which is the best kind of deluge you can have, I think 🙂
Cabbage White butterflies laid their eggs all over the pointed cabbages and romanescos. They hatched, and the caterpillars decimated the cabbages.
And now I know what enviromesh is! 😂
