Yellow Eggs On My Primo & Chinese Cabbages

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom Gb

I'm growing primo and chinese cabbage for the 1st time ever, and have noticed that on the under leaf of 4 cabbages there's tiny yellow eggs, they are perfectly shaped together in very neat clusters, can anyone please tell me what's laying them?

Thank you :-)



Probably cabbage white butterfly eggs which will turn into caterpillars and shred the leaves. Squash the eggs and if you know any children offer a reward for the caterpillars they find, children have sharp eyes! Prevention is netting, and companion planting with nasturtiums to fool the butterflies. .

Thanx I'll pop some netting on tonight, don't want them to get munched on anymore.
