Create a butterfly friendly area in your garden!

Support your environment and create a friendly area in your garden for these beautiful winged insects. Warmth, bright colours and sweet smells will attract butterflies into your garden.

READY, STEADY, GO…
HAVE LOADS OF FUN!

Sit back and enjoy watching butterflies visit your feeder. Top up the feeder regularly with sugar syrup to invite more butterflies to your feeder.

  • A bamboo cane
  • A recycled bottle top
  • Some recycled wrapping paper
  • A laminator
  • A tack/drawing pin or similar
  • Cotton wool
