New Butterfly Garden
I'm new to this site and have been reading through the posts. My wife and I have been planning a butterfly garden for several months. A few weeks ago we completed a garden bed (8' x 5'). We already had a few butterfly plants to start with. But we'll wait until the spring before we really get going on it.
I wanted to share a picture of our garden and our plans. I have a list of other plants and herbs we'd like to use to fill it in. But I'd like to get some feedback from the pros before we get too far ahead of ourselves.
From what I've read I understand a small garden like ours probably won't attract a lot of butterflies. Is that really true? Can we import/place caterpillars on host plants to help establish are garden and if so when?
Thanks for your help and I look forward to learning so much more from everyone.
