Hello. I'm growing peas, sweet peas and nastursiams amonst other plants (mostly veg) in pots on my terrace. Recently the leaves of these three species have come under attack...there's holes in them often to the point that only the veins of the leaves are left like a skeleton. I've found a green caterpillar under one leaf....light green with a delicate white pattern looking like squares over it, about 1cm long. Does anyone have any ideas what might be eating the plants (is it this caterpillar and if so what is it?) and how I can treat for it, preferably organically but I'll listen to alternatives! Thanks very much.
