    Hi Joyce. Please text me your address as soon as possible and I will get some seedlings way to you There will be a lot of them but they are only about 200 mm tall I suggest you stand them in a glass of water so that the roots are covered and the plants will continue to grow With the caterpillars on them and they will eat the leaves and stems Then you can plant what’s left – I suggest in groups of two or three or give them away to friends or whatever

    if your caterpillars are very close to pupating you can finish them on cucumber and/or pumpkin. I was driven to try it and was amazed it worked I have to say. I got approx. 70 good butterflys doing that. No good for younger ones though but taking the big ones off what you have left frees any food for the young ones till you can fix the situation. Jacqui has seedlings she can courier to you.
