Hello.I am new to this forum.I don't have a garden but i have a big space that i can grow plants in pots in outdoors.The place doesn't get a lot of sun but still I thought I can grow a few greens there.But today i noticed a lot of white eggs/worms in the dills pot.It can be insect also i am not sure.I was really suprised because i thought dill was an aromatical plant so insects dont like it and won't go near them.I also have some sort of white bugs on my fuschia plants flowers and they are damaging its beautiful flowers and leaves.Can you suggest me a few ways to eliminate them non chemically???

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Those eggs/worms on your dill may be butterfly eggs and instars (caterpillars.) Here are instars on our dill. I leave them to develop into butterflies. Dill is a host plant to some butterflies, as is parsley and fennel. We just plant more dill than we need, and share with the butterflies.
