Posted: 10/08/2014 at 17:40

I have put them outside in there big pots ,thought maybe this heavy rain we are having will knock any remaining ones off !

I am at a loss as to how and where I have got them from  this must be the fourth year I have bought  them from jersy plants .never had caterpillars on capsicum before .I did wonder if it's the cabbage white butterfly ,.

At the moment I  have the odd perfect day already   which for me is  a day  of   pot t e ring      in the garden  ,being able or to achieve clearing the long border     e t c . 

I don't ask for a lot for me it's the simple things in life.

I love working in the garden .I am my happiest.

I've never had much luck with them ,I've a feeling they have another name too. I did wonder about taking cuttings  to get them through the winter but the  original shrub didn't make it.

       Thank you to you all - just a bit more on the same - Please don't read this as being nosey   e t c .  But what sort of area  do you live , can't think how to put it .I am surrounded by  fields so it could be the spraying .though I do have lots of  b u d l e a  type shrubs which butterflies love .so butterflies are no problem. I did read if you put jars of sugar syrup in the greenhouse it will attract the other insects  in.

Again I would appreciate other views on the sugar syrup please.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed there doesn't seem as many insects this year?

The greenhouse I grow cucumbers Is usually full of an assortment of indects . This year there are defiantly a lot less.
