Butterfly World


By wagger


There was a double page spread in yesterday’s Daily Mail about Butterfly World at Chiswell Green in Hertfordshire, which is in the process of being built. They have planted 20 acres of grassland into ‘an explosion of summer blooms’ which will gradually be replanted with british natives. It can apparently be glimpsed from the M25, near St Albans. They are also building a biodome bigger than the ones at the Eden Project and should be completed in 2011.
There is a website at – just wish they had the picture on there as it is stunning, almost worth a trip round the dreaded M25.
