does anyone know anywhere i could get free milkweed seeds or plants? i would like to transform my backyard into a monarch garden and would like LOTS of milkweed. it bothers me that i havent seen a monarch butterfly in a few years and i would like to help give them a safe place to be. any help or info would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Amber
I have 2 colors and they had a lot of seeds right now. One is yellow, another red/ yellow center.
I can send you seeds too.

Do you have white color? would you like to trade?

hi, i would be very grateful for some seeds... its sad that when i was a kid there were monarchs everywhere and everywhere you looked you could find some milkweed... now you have to really look HARD to find any... so sad!

my monarchs eat my milkweed seed pods this year. But I do have seedlings pop up all over the yard. i have quite a few butterfly varieties visit my gardens. The one that I really love is the zebra long wing which is the state butterfly of Florida. The first few years i lived here I saw 1. Now I see them everyday! Having larval and nectar plants has done the trick.
