General Tips

  • Butterflies like large, sunny open areas
  • Plant desired plants in masses, rather than in rows or scattered areas.
  • Use a fence, trees or shrubs to protect the butterflies from the wind.
    They will also provide shelter for the butterflies at night.
  • Butterflies enjoy puddles. You can make a puddle with a shallow dish filled with sand or gravel and fill with stale beer, sweet drinks or water. Overripe fruit also attracts butterflies.
  • Do not use pesticides in your garden because they kill butterflies.
  • Choose a mix of annual and perennial flowers that bloom from early spring through late summer Also, the more different kinds of plants, the greater the variety of butterfiels will come.
  • Place a few dark, flat stones in your garden so the butterflies can rest there.
