Yes the Safai Park is still there ~ I'm making my garden into a Wildlife Garden Safari ~ with all my Bird feeders and Boxes ;-) And I've just ordered some Insect inpection tower to add to the Safari ! Do you know which plants are best for attracting Butterflies ?

Oh, there are so many! Buddlejas are very good, as are Origanum, Thyme and Lavenders. I'm trying to think back to the summer - Erigerons seem to attract them, too and Hebes. They seem to enjoy plants with clusters of small flowerlets, If you have a wild corner, nettles are good for butterflies.

Hi Spritzhenry

Thank you for the recommendations on flowers for Butterflies ~ I will write them down for the next time I go to the nursery or garden centre...

I know Nettles are good for Butterflies to breed on, but will need to find a suitable space in the garden :-)
