Butterfly Garden

'Natured Kids' created a butterfly garden, planted with red, yellow, orange, pink and purple nectar producing flowers.

Careful placement of a dish of wet sand, will provide the necessary minerals and salts for healthy butterfly growth.

Did you know....

A butterfly:
* smells with its two antennae?
* uses a straw like proboscis
   to sip nectar from flowers?
* tastes with its feet?
* has soft, tiny scales on its 
   wings that give it colour?
* helps us pollinate our 
   flowers and food?

Your local nursery can help you to select butterfly attracting plants for in your home or centre garden.
