Affirmative - apply weekly and after rains, apply in the early morning or late in the day, allow to drizzle to the point of run off in the centre where the lush new growth forms.
I :love: Dipel!

Egg shells spred around your garden beds will stop the white cabbage moth
I dont know :dunno: how or why it works but it does and no chemicals

The butterflies are probably tricked in to thinking there are others already there.

I save up the white plastic bag holder closerers from bread bags and scatter them for the same reason, doesn't seem to work though :bash:
