@TheGardenWife @bigemrg I was quite happy for the caterpillars to do their thing. Alas it's just too much of a big job now😁

@bigemrg errrr these certainly did. And that's because they got fed as they are in with other plants. I know..... next year some where else And they can have their own party

When I grew them, I couldn't believe how they drew caterpillars! Have you had any?

@SylviaDavies I've had none. I've had blackfly eggs which have now gone. And the cabbage white have been attracted to them. Maybe they are just too big 😨😂

@charlottehurst Hello, I have grown these beauties in every garden we have had, love them, they are renown for attracting bees and butterflies especially the cabbage Whites, you will find they lay their eggs under the leaves and towards the end of the summer there will be hundreds of catapiler son them eating the leaves They do look a bit of a mess by then but I just think of all the butterflies we will get from them for next year!!! So it is worth putting up with raggy leaves for a while. Xxxx

Sorry forgot to mention, don't feed them, if you do, they get very large leaves and not very many flowers, so you have to do the very opposite with these from you with all the other plants, they will even grow in very poor soil and thrive, giving you loads of flowers!!xxxx
