It still feels and looks like winter, but birds have been singing and I’m confident spring is on the way. It will be time for planting before we know it. Depending on what we plant, we can help monarchs and other backyard wildlife.
In particular, milkweeds attract monarchs, and other butterflies and pollinators. These are the ones I grow in my garden, and I’ve found monarch caterpillars on all of them.
I’m doing a couple of presentations about milkweeds and other native plants you can add to your garden to help monarchs, as well as other butterflies, pollinators, and birds.
Both presentations are free and open to the public. If you know of anyone who will be reworking their garden and might be interested, please let them know.
