No. VA new butterfly garden -- no butterflies!
This spring I planted a fairly large butterfly garden -- did lots of research, have a variety of both host and nectar plants. I only rarely have seen a couple of little butterflies. No cats. I also noticed that my butterfly bushes planted last year in the front yard have many fewer visitors this year. Last year there were many butterflies which is what got me interested in planting the garden this year. This year I have only seen one or two. Is it the heat? Should I being doing something else?
