Not all white butterfly caterpillars eat your brassica’s- there are two beautiful species which don’t, and they are in our garden now. The beautiful Orange Tip lays its eggs on Ladies Smock (Milkmaids) and Jack by the Hedge (Garlic Mustard), one per plant as the caterpillars will eat each other if not! The female adult may look like a ‘cabbage white’ (see photo’s) and both male and female love our Pulmonaria and other spring flowers, rich in nectar. Conditions: More sunny intervals though cooler (more like the average for this time of year). Temperature: Max 15 Min 6C.
