Our lemon tree (or it could be a lime tree) out on the balcony as being used as a snack by this little dude and his friends.
Not wanting to lose or beloved plant which has taken us 3 years to get it to the stage it might actually produce something we could add into a G&T, we moved the hungry little caterpillars to a safe place, gave it some of the leaves from the plant it was attacking, a little fresh strawberry and a wad of kitchen towel dripped in water and left it to its own devices.
It's since grown horns and strung itself up with little webs.
Watch this space for alien updates. What will emerge - moth or butterfly?
