The nasturtiums in my flowerpot man have flourished, without any sign of cabbage white's. Evidently the scouring and plucking of infested leaves, along with a good washing of soapy water, did the trick.
They have been very colourful (red, orange and yellow), so now I am waiting for the ones in the front garden to flower. As these are planted in the ground, rather than nourishing potting compst, they have taken a little longer to grow. In all reality, they seem to have taken better than those in the tub, as they are less 'leggy' and a better colour. Looking at them, I expect them to flower in another week or so.
(I'd better do the weeding, to show them off properly!)
