    I live in Gore and have both ragwort and groundsel. I can get a plentiful supply of ragwort any time I need it. I have enjoyed great success with yellow admirals and a small number of Magpie Moths so would love to try the Cinnabar Moth as well.

    Long Flowering Purple. Just let me know which ones you would like, I can send them in the new year. We don’t have weevels on Southland so plants are bug free. TX me 027 5257484

    I raised hundreds of yellow admerals last year but to my dissapointment no red admerials.
    This year I was lucky enough to witness a red admeral laying on my plants, I also have had several yellow admerals laying. I now have tiny caterpillers all over my plants. I live in Gore down south in Southland. It’s so nice to see butterflys again after a cold winter.

    I would love to take some I have plenty of plants. I don’t live close by but am more than happy to reinburse the cost.

    I just want to say a huge thank you to Caryl for trusting me with her precious monarch eggs. Thanks to her I have had butterflys coming back and laying on my plants. I have upwards of 400 crysalis hanging waiting to hatch and I couldn’t begin to count the number of caterpillers I have still happily eating away. I now know the full pleasure every one else gets out of watching your butterflys flipping around your garden. I have enjoyed Monarchs in my garden since early December and it’s all down to Caryl. A Big Thank You from Christine in Gore for making my dream come true.

    Have tried dish washing soap and water sprayed onto the leaves. This works well with aphids but not we don’t have weavils here so don’t know if it will work for them. It washes off easily so won’t harm butterflys. Try a small area and see what happens.

    Hi Caryl please don’t cull eggs before contacting me.
    I’m always greatful to anyone who can help me out.
    I live in Gore and have to rely on others to send me eggs.
    I always have heaps of food but the Monarchs aren’t established
    Down here yet. So please don’t forget me. Even if you have spear eggs
    Early in the season that you can send me to get
    Me started i would be greatful. My cell is 027 525 7484
