On 26/07/19 Dave tells us :

Love them or hate them , if you grow cabbage or nasturtium you got to expect a visit from Large or Small Whites . I watched a female Large White spend half an hour fussing over what leaf to lay on before settling to lay this egg batch . This maybe controversial to some but the cabbages in my garden are grown especially for the whites . 

With a decline in so many of our butterflies, it is very kind to grow plants for all species.

Take a closer look at Large White butterflies next time you see one , they are beautiful in their simplicity.
