Butterfly friendly flower bed

November 17, 2010

in Gardening For Wildlife, Insects

All my articles, videos and work are funded by my teaching and sales of award winning bumblebee nest boxessolitary bee boxes,  and wormeries.

Go on admit it. You expected an article about planting flowers that attract butterflies!  Well this butterfly attracts flowers! Be imaginative with your flower beds in their shape and size.

Just look how effective this can be.

For those of you who are a little bit more scientific about butterflies, I hope this next photo does not disappoint!

I wondered where my bike lock had got to! Put to good use here as the butterfly’s proboscis! All hand made from odds pieces of timber, hose pipe and other bits and pieces. Working with children we planted the butterfly bed with glorious colours.
