Again you've run to the chemicles, "Why' i dont know"

As addict has asked "What" have you sprayed with ?

Ive grown cabbages for more years than i care to remember and the main problem ive had is catterpillars, you can over come this even starting!  by using netting over the young plants and keeping an eye out for the signs if any eggs we're laid,

I plant a few cabbages in with my bedding flowers along with beet root and onions all helps keep both the soil in good condition and a lot of the insects happy but i must admit i have a very large garden and so have the space to plant in this fashion,

But ref chemicles !! I avoid them as much as possible.
