One thing for sure....if you don't deadhead, you WILL have more plants as Nicotiana readily self sows.
I bet the caterpillers would find somewhere else to go.


Kathleen~~This is too funny a dilemma! Where are those wonderful caterpillasr! Although, I do like the sphinx moths! It does seed well! N sylvestris is coming up in the cracks in my driveway! Have a fun weekend. Btw, I chopped mine after I collected seed. gail

Shady Gardener

Did you identify him as a Sphinx Moth caterpillar? I was under the impression they had little upright tails on their hind ends. No matter, the little squirts! Hope you were able to save some seeds!


You're right Shady Gardener. I don't believe they are sphinx moth caterpillars now that you've brought that up. I think that makes my decision easier ~ it's getting deadheaded today!


I don't have a clue about any of this. LOL But I did want to stop by and say hi and the pictures you took of them are beautiful.
Sorry I'm late as usual but hope to be catching up soon. Oh ya right now that there will be no flowers and I don't have a clue what I'll post on. HELP!!!!!
