Gardening for Butterflies: Beyond Milkweed and Coneflowers with Margaret Kimmel
You’ve been growing milkweed and adding perennials that attract a few butterflies to your garden. Are you ready to “branch out” and try even more plants? Join Margaret Kimmel, a lead butterfly volunteer at the Delaware Botanic Gardens, to discuss nectar and host plants (both annuals and perennials) for a more diverse butterfly population. Learn why shrubs and trees can be an important part of your pollinator habitat. It’s actually easy and fun to turn a few flowerpots, a garden bed or your entire yard into a richer and more diverse habitat where butterflies don’t just visit, they produce the next generation!!!
