Butterflies galore
Thursday, 09 April 2015 12:47

Butterflies are abundant in the nursery and our garden. With the rain and hot weather flowers are open in many of the species. Plectranthus ecklonii, Asystasia gangetica, Xylothecaa kraussiana and many others play host to a number of butterflies. Look out for the Red Acraea, the Citrus Swallowtail, Green Banded Swallowtail and many more. Keep a journal listing the butterflies as well as the dates you see them. Compare them from year to year. Do not forget to plant shrubs and trees that attract butterflies. Read Julia Botha's book 'Bringing Butterflies back to your garden".
