    I’m in Tawa and have yet to see a Monarch in my garden. If you are local I could take some caterpillars.

    Feed them on cucumber until you find a solution. I’m unable to help. I’ve been feeding mine on cucumber. My caterpillars have eaten approx 300+ swan plants to bare stems. The trouble with our climate is that it is very difficult to grow bushy plants more than a metre in my experience. We have to monitor the egg situation before we are over run with caterpillars. It’s a pity we don’t have a Wellington group to support one another. I’d be keen on that.I have approx 110 chrysalides inside right now. Caryl (Seatoun, Wellington)
