I have a twisted willow tree it is young and still in a pot . It was absolutely ravaged by very tiny green caterpillars in June and I moved it away to another part of the garden . dowsed it with soap soltion water and picked off ever caterpillar I could find . It has since regrown leaves and is thriving but they are back the little b******* s and I have had to spray and strip manually again. does anyone know what caterpillar is devouring my willow . They are very very small but very very hungry and arrive in the tens/hundreds! I live in N Wales



I always find tiny catapillars on my willow and also on some of my roses. All I do is flick them off and hope the black birds get them.
