It’s that time of the year again! Our Spring Plant Sale is coming up on April 7 and 8. You can choose from more than 600 varieties of native and adapted plants! You could wait until you have your plants in hand to start planning your garden, but that could lead to plants left in their pots for longer than intended. Here’s a pro tip: start planning your garden now.

Let’s focus on planning a butterfly garden. What do you need to attract butterflies to your garden? The first thing you’ll need to think about is location! Most butterfly attracting plants are sun-loving, so you’ll need a spot with plenty of sunshine. Next you need to know what to plant. Native and adapted host and nectar plants are essential. Host plants feed hungry caterpillars and nectar plants feed adult butterflies.
