Make Your Garden a Monarch WaystationIf you had the chance to help a butterfly you would, right? Well, now is your chance.
Every fall, millions of monarch butterflies make their annual migration from the U.S. and Canada to overwintering sites in Mexico and California. Their journey is long and perilous, so monarchs have long depended on habitat along the way that includes the milkweed and nectar plants they need to refuel. Unfortunately, much of that habitat has been lost in the last decade to development and pesticides. You can help remedy this by joining the Monarch Waystation Program.
Or, you can just plant some of the monarch-friendly plants suggested by Monarch Watch in their Waystation instructions.
Potted Petals can get many of the plants listed, so just call with your list.
