Andrew will take guests through creating and adding butterfly-friendly plants to your garden. Plants used to help several varieties of butterflies flourish along with specific plants caterpillars need to grow will be available for sale and incorporation to your own garden from Ricardo’s Nursery. In a time when butterfly populations are dwindling, their ability to pollinate our food sources and flowers depends on their available food sources.
