Anybody here who has ever tried rearing silk worms in their garden? Silk farming, also known as Sericulture, is the rearing of silkworms for the production of silk. Although there are several commercial species of silkworms, Bombyx mori is the most widely used silkworm.

Silkworm moths only eat mulberry leaves. You are supposed to feed them twice a day to avoid the leaves becoming mouldy. If you don't have Mulberry leaves then you can rear Silkworms on artificial diet.
