Cress

Land Cress - Cabbage Moth
Barbarea vulgaris

The friend of brassica crops!! Research from the University of Queensland has shown that this plant is the perfect foil for cabbage moth/butterfly, as they are attracted to this cress and lay their eggs on the leaves. The hatching caterpillars munch on the leaves and drop dead! Your kales, cabbages etc. are relatively left alone. Also known as Rocketcress, Bittercress or Yellow Rocket. Sow amongst your brassica crops. 150 seeds.
