I’m really excited to share this weeks post as it’s my big Garden Month project. It’s been a long time coming and I put the groundwork (excuse the pun) in early this year, and now it’s starting to take some shape. I’m going to have a dedicated bee and butterfly bed!

When I was younger I alway remember running around the garden chasing after butterflies – my Mum has a huge Buddleia in her garden and it was always covered in butterflies.

For Christmas I actually got a bird feeder and a box of seeds that is specifically put together to do a bee and butterfly garden, now you may think “Geez what a bad present”. I was so very happy with this because it meant that I could start transforming my garden into that garden I remember from my childhood.

If you can’t find a box of seeds like this at your local garden center I have found a few articles that will help you get on your way to bringing bees, butterflies and other creatures into your garden.

I can’t wait to see the types of flowers that will be coming through this year and what they will attract. I’m also going to try my hand at setting up a watering place for the bees and butterflies and I’m even going to try to make a fruit cage for the butterflies to see if that attracts more.

This would be a fun project for anyone, especially if you have little ones that you are teaching about gardening and nature. I hope that this has inspired you to get out into the garden and help out your local wildlife.
