A clump of nettles in a pot so they don't spread is ideal for any wildlife friendly garden.......easy enough if you don't let them seed.........highly recommmended
the righrt ones are worth looking after - they give us the most beautiful butterflies
I have many butterfly friendly plants in the garden - just as important aas looking after the birds

There is a massive swarm of black caterpillars just outside where ~I work. I will have to get a photo and find out what they are. I also saw a slug munching away on a poppy i'd not long planted.. But I didnt have the heart to stop it! after all its just a little thing trying to get by like me! Probably too much of a softie for my own good...
Its a Army of caterpillars Thomas. Please do take a photo. I look forward to it.
I will take a guess at Peacock Butterfly caterpillars or small tortoiseshell caterpillar at the moment.
