I love my garden and I love Butterflies.
But the caterpillars drive me nuts, they can destroy plants in a matter of hours.
My solution to this problem is to plant sacrificial plants, the plan is the Butterflies lay their eggs there, instead of on the plants I want to keep, on the whole this works very well.
My sacrificial plant of choice is the Nestertion (Not sure of spelling, and that doesn't look right) it works very well, my Cauliflower and Broccoli are free to grow in peace, whilst they gobble up the Nestertions, all I need to do now is figure out a way to deal with those pesky Slugs and Snails.
We also have a Toad that likes to visit, you can read about him on The Dogs Blog.
