Talkback: Butterflies



  • I think we gardeners must accept some responsibility. Mowing our lawns leads to a loss of nectar-rich habitat... pruning, weeding, tidying our gardens reduces available food sources as well as resulting in many chrysalises ending up on the compost heap. And while we hate to see the destruction of our plants, we must remember that the collections of eggs under leaves and the voracious caterpillars devouring our crops/ornamentals are often the eggs and caterpillars of these endangered species. Here's to relaxing a little, allowing our lawns grow, not using sprays and letting nature take its course. What's a few plants when the end result is something as beautiful and magical as a butterfly?
