If you love gardening and you practically live at the garden center in Kansas City, you may be wondering how to attract more butterflies to your garden and flowers. Enjoy the springtime beauty of flying butterflies when you are out in your yard with these helpful tips.
- Plant flowers that are sure to attract butterflies, like lavender, coneflower, sage, and bee balm. Plants that make great nectar for butterflies include butterfly bush and Queen Anne’s lace.
- You’ll also need some other items to create a butterfly-friendly environment, such as a flat rock for butterflies to land on, and a source of water that is small, such as a birdbath or small container.
- Don’t forget to feed the butterfly larvae to ensure you’ll always have butterflies visiting; they will need dill, fennel, and parsley, among other plants.
- Keep a small area of your grass unmown, so there is a bit of a refuge spot for buttterflies to take cover if needed.
