The Monarchs are Back!

We have kept several populations of milkweeds on the property to benefit monarch butterflies for many years. Milkweeds are the sole host plant for the butterfly larvae.  Two years ago, we saw only 1 monarch butterfly and last year only 2.  This has apparently been due to farming practices and road maintenance that have resulted in the near elimination the milkweeds in the central US, the main migratory flight path of the butterflies (between here and Mexico). Many people have responded by planting milkweeeds on their properties, and it seems to be working!  After a nearly 2 year hiatus, we have counted over 30 monarch adults this year, and I am constantly plucking the caterpillars off of our potted plants (the ones that we sell) and placing them on those that we have in the ground.  We currently have a nice selection of swamp milkweed  and butterfly weed.  We also have plugs of liatris, skullcap, spikenard and lobelia, just to name a few.

Stop by if you are in the neighborhood, or take a ride through our beautiful contryside for a visit!

Happy gardening!
