have a lot of damage from cabbage white caterpillars on the brussels sprouts at the moment. they've been able to munch their way unhindered through a lot of the leaves while we've been away on holiday.I'm now trying to reduce their numbers by spraying with a soap and garlic spray - it does seem to work to a limited extent so long as I use it frequently.there are less cabbage white butterflies around now - mainly seeing speckled wood - on the verbena bonariensis.
