I read in last Friday's NZ Gardener newsletter that plastic shapes of white butterflies stuck on kebab sticks keep them away. Apparently they are territorial and don't encroach on butterflies already there. I'm passing this on so others can have a go, too. I doubled some of the sticks so they are higher above the kale etc. Let's know if they made a difference.

I wonder if coloured butterflies will have the same effect? I've got a couple of artificial butterflies that were attached to bunches of flowers that I could "plant" in my vege patch...
