A Butterfly Garden Kit can help children appreciate the beauty of butterflies in the garden. In addition to the kit comes a certificate to get 5 live caterpillars sent to you to grow on until they metamorphise into butterflies. Then they can then be released into your garden.
Butterflies then will look for nectar and pollen from your garden flowers. Buddleja, Pinks, Achillea and wild flowers are ideal plants to grow. You can buy seeds or plants in a range of varieties and clours. Butterfly seed mixture from Thompson & Morgan
Only the Cabbage White butterfly caterpillars have ever done any damage in my garden. That was to the brassicas and who needs too much cabbage anyway. So as an environmentally sound wildlife garden project give butterflies a treat this summer.
Butterflies like a drop of water and a bird bath can be of some use.
