CAN anyone tell me the best way to deal with cabbage fly I am growing them in pots



Have you tried putting a piece of square thin matting about 3or4 inches with a hole in the centre and a slit out to the side and put it around the stem

Haha quite agree the fly is not very tasty what kind of lime,do you use and can you get it at a garden centre thanks to everyone who sent comments its the first time I have tried cabbage it was looking good till the holes appeared and some of the leaves started disappearing

Thanks for your comments the reason I thought it was that I looked under the leaves and found a greenish sort of fly on some
