The Cabbage Moth tends to burrow into the heart of your plants.

Identifying FeaturesEdit

Tunnelled holes are visible in the heart of the plant. Some leaf damage may occur.




The simplest method is to check leaves regularly and remove and destroy any eggs or larvae found. A variety of sprays are available, but the best preventative method is to net plants either individually or across whole beds.
