Friend or foe - whose are these eggs?
Hi I have just found these little brown eggs on this long-neglected pot of violets - whatever has done it has laid them in the shells of the petals I think? Please could someone tell me if they think I should throw them over the wall to nice wildlifey path behind my house or leave them alone? Pot of violets was put under cherry tree as sacrificial plant which suffered big aphid attack earlier this year (trying to avoid chemicals). Since then I have seen yellow ladybirds and red ones around plus hoverflies and the aphids have vanished :-) so i don't want to get rid of friendly bug-babies! Thanks in advance! P.S. I also have a ton of caterpillars (as you can tell by the violet leaves!) could they be caterpillar eggs?
