Children love to watch butterflies, and if you create a butterfly garden, they may also have the opportunity to search for the caterpillars and cocoons.
To grow a butterfly garden, you will need to grow plants that furnish nectar, places for the butterflies to lay eggs, food plants for the caterpillars (the larva) and places for them to form the chrysalises (cocoons).
Here are some tips for designing your butterfly garden:
1. Grow nectar-producing plants in sunny areas because adult butterflies rarely feed in the shade.
2. Butterflies and many caterpillars are finicky eaters. Consult a regional field guide to find out which species of butterflies prefer which plants.
3. Plant dense clusters of small flowers such as zinnias, milkweeds, verbenas, and many mint family plants are favored by many butterfly species.
4. Do not use insecticides or pesticides.
5. Design your organery so that blossoms are clustered together by type of plant and also in monochromatic, big splashes of color. This makes it easier for the butterflies to see and catch the scent of the blossoms.
6. Choose plants with tubular flowers or flat-topped blossoms, which make good landing strips and feeding stations. Pick easier to sip from singular flowers rather than doubles (the ones with extra petals).
7. Since butterflies are active from early spring until late fall, plant accordingly, and consist of annuals and perennials.
8. Include plants in the butterfly organery that furnish food for caterpillars and that are attractive to female butterflies finding for places to lay eggs.
9. Maintain favorite "watering holes": damp areas and/or shallow puddles.
10. Include plentifulness places in your butterfly organery for basking. Since butterflies can't fly when their bodies temperatures are below 70 F, they often bask in the sun on stones, bare soil or vegetation.
11. Last but not least, create your butterfly organery in a way that makes it easy for you and the children to enjoy, possibly by together with a swing bench in the garden, or bringing the organery to you by planting near a deck or pond.Bible Story Crafts - Caterpillar, Butterfly Activities - Kids Bible Story CraftsHow to make a gift box from a matchbox Video Clips.
