Growing local

Just look at what I found, fat and happy, munching away on all my grape leaves. There are an awful lot of leaves gone for this to have been the only one but I couldn't see any more. The chookies had a good old fight over this one. :)

They can certainly destroy a plant in no time. But here we call it "Selective Pruning"

I just pulled a similar one off the china doll tree, spotted by many large caterpillar poos on the ground, underneath the caterpillar. They are type of hornworm caterpillar. I usually see a few of these each summer.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
