ATTRACTING BUTTERFLIES TO YOUR GARDENJOHN & MAUREEN TAMPION Book Number: 81725 Product format: Paperback
Of course we know that Buddleja attracts butterflies, but Lobelia, Lavender, Lantana, Bird's Foot Trefoil, brambles and bluebells do too. This marvellous directory of plants not only introduces the basic principles but answers the questions - where do butterflies come from and why so few? Looking at intensely cultivated gardens, butterfly meadows, we are led to choose the type of plants to attract butterflies followed by a directory of common garden butterflies, breeding them then acting as nursemaid to their young ones, a directory of plants for caterpillars plus winter survival and capturing butterfly images. This has been done to the greatest effect in this large softback packed with colour photos both of plants and beautiful butterflies in flight and in full colour. 176 large pages.
