Raising cats and releasing butterflies

msomallySeptember 30, 2012

I would appreciate any tips. I have snagged a few as the cats got big but have not done this routinely. Thanks!I just love this forum! My whole yard is a butterfly garden. I dug up all grass and just started making beds! So rewarding! i am now starting on my neighbors yard! (with his permission of course) Thanks

Msomally,
Tell us more about your garden and which plants you have. I love to hear about the process folk go through to create their butterfly gardens. And what is you neighbor letting you do? I'm recreating my butterfly garden at a new house, and it's slow going the first year as transplants get established and seedlings struggle to survive. I'm hoping next year will be much busier around my house. Happy gardening!

Martha
