A new butterfly garden

I find work and home gardening and garden outreach intertwined often. But I'm totally enthused about our new Butterfly Garden site (an expansion of the Children's Garden) at the botanical garden where I work.

We've had a Butterfly Garden for many years, but it was not a good site (on a hill, windy, and in poor soil). So relocating it in a sheltered site below established Children's Garden plantings (the Ethnobotany Garden, the Peter Rabbit Garden, and the Food for Thought Garden), makes a lot of sense.

We'll be putting plants in the ground tomorrow, hooray! I'm totally thrilled about it. This was my post on our not-official garden blog.

  1. What an exciting project! I have designed and planted butterfly demonstration gardens and it is just so easy to just focus on the bright flowering plants instead of the larval plants. Please post more photos as the plants grow and butterflies come to visit!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
