Hello. I am trying to grow decorative cabbage/kale but am having trouble with the white butterfly-like moths eating holes in the leaves. What can I do to get rid of these pests? Thanks.

The best defense against cabbage moths is a botanical called Bt. It's sold as Dipel or Thuricide and effectively controls caterpillars. Best wishes with your ornamental cabbage!
