    Where can I buy some plants for my hungry caterpillars?
    They are stripping the swan plants I purchased!
    I am based in Auckland CBD, and walking is best form of transport for me.
    Are there any garden shops within the CBD which would sell more plants?
    Thank you in advance.

    Hey Jacqui!

    The caterpillars LOVE the plants now, and have almost completely stripped them! My supplier has sold out, so, yes, I am in need of more plants! When would you be available to deliver?

    Hi Jacqui

    Ok, fantastic!
    I sourced some plants last night and they were delivered today 🙂 But unfortunately, the caterpillars on them haven’t been eating – I got them off a Trademe lister who states they were grown in a greenhouse. Feedback placed included comments saying that caterpillars were happy, so I shall wait and see how they are tomorrow.
    I will update you tomorrow and let you know if I need new plants – in case mine are sprayed, hence, why they are not being eaten.
    Thanks for your assistance 😀

    Hi Hayley Rose

    I am in Blockhouse Bay but do have to come into the city later this week and I am expecting a delivery of plants any day now. So if you phone me (551 3383 or 027 481 4811) we can probably organise something where I could deliver them to you.

    Great to know the monarchs are being looked after in the CBD!
