Summer gardens and beautiful Butterflies.

There are many reasons why different people choose to plant Summer Gardens. One common reason that is so popular these days when people try to entertain children with small things at home is to attract butterflies. It is much easier than one would think that you are living in the right environment to thrive and flourish with these beautiful creations.

Butterflies are beautiful creatures with very short lifespan. Because of this they seem to be attracted to beautiful things in their short lives. Dark flowers attract butterflies in droves. This means that butterflies are known to attract butterflies, such as aster, marigold, black-eyed Susan and butterfly weed.

Another thing you may want to consider when choosing flowers to attract these delightful winged creatures to your summer garden is the nectar. It is an essential food for butterflies, so a garden full of more nectar-producing flowers is likely to gain more than its share of attention from nearby butterflies. The selection of nectar-producing flowers is likely to increase the number of butterflies in your garden, so plant lots and prune them to produce maximum flowers for maximum impact.

In addition to the flowers in your Summer Garden, you can use other methods to attract butterflies to the delight of young and old alike. One such method is to place several pieces of ripe fruit in your garden. This is another feast for butterflies to enjoy and will also attract many to the area.

One thing to remember when planting to attract butterflies is that they worship the sun. This means that shade-type gardens are not best suited to attracting them and if that happens, they will not be kept for long. Plant your butterfly garden in an area that benefits from the full power of the sun to entertain possible butterflies, and keep in mind that different butterflies are attracted to different plants as caterpillars and butterflies. Depending on the type of butterfly you wish to attract, a little more study may yield better results when looking for the best plants for your butterfly garden.

In a garden built to attract butterflies, pesticides should be avoided. Visiting your summer garden does not mean attracting butterflies to your garden to hurt them with the nourishment they receive. Use organic gardening techniques in your butterfly garden for best results.

You should also make sure that there is a water source nearby to keep the butterflies well hydrated. Like any other animal, they need water. Many gardens these days add water features (best to avoid mosquitoes) while being freely available to animals we hope to attract, such as birds and butterflies.

Our Summer Gardens are an investment of time and attention. It is great when we can achieve more than one beauty because of our hard work and efforts. The best way to achieve that is with a summer garden designed to attract butterflies.
