Yellow admirals on flat leaf parsley

    Hi everyone,

    I have just seen a yellow admiral laying eggs on several of my Italian flat leaf parsley plants.
    Also, there are several leaf ‘tents’ with pale coloured caterpillars inside.

    The parsley is quite old, leggy and falling over, and it’s planted in almost full shade.

    I haven’t seen any nettles in my garden or nearby, but there’s bush and a farm next door, so perhaps there are nettles there.

    I am in Pukerua Bay, not far from Wellington
