As so many gardeners know, the cabbage white is a frequent visitor to our gardens. Laying eggs on plants in the cabbage and mustard family, the larva hatch and feast on the leaves of our precious plants. If you don't keep a close eye on your plants, it can seem like they just appear overnight and wreak havoc on your brassicas. Usually, by the time you see the butterflies flitting around, the damage has been done and the eggs have been laid.
There are lots of remedies for this, including netting, planting companion plants which will repel the butterfly, and hand cleaning each leaf.
The cabbage white is a territorial butterfly- meaning that it does not want to visit your brassicas if there are others nearby. Insert: decoy. Download yours here (directions included!)
