Screening is a must as we have a large population of Cabbage Whites here.

I thought this would be a good time to mention this older gardening book by Peter McHoy that I enjoy leafing through The book Practical Gardening is true to its title. It is well-written and easy to follow. The images are clear and provide a good depiction of the action that is occurring.
