My Butterfly Garden Tips
*Don’t use chemical insecticides in the butterfly garden.
*Establish your flower garden where it will receive full sun. Butterflies need direct sunlight for flying power.
*Like hummingbirds, butterflies are attracted to flowers by color. Group flowers that butterflies favor in clusters.
*Plant taller species toward the back of the flowerbed and shorter flowers at the front to get the best view of both flowers in bloom and butterflies in flight.
*Butterflies do not drink from open water but are drawn to moisture instead. Fill a saucer with potting soil or a sponge and add water to moisten. Place the saucer in the flower garden and keep soil or sponge moist through the summer.
*Set a rock in a sunny place in your garden for butterflies to alight on. Butterflies sun on rocks for energy to fly.
