Gardening for Butterflies

Cathy Crye

Butterflies and other pollinators are not only beautiful, but critical to our food system. Insect populations are declining, and they need our help. Butterfly gardening is a fun and easy way to provide for these important creatures. Learn how to plant a garden that will attract butterflies to your yard and help them thrive.

Bio: Kathy Crye has a degree in Horticulture from Middle Tennessee State University, and decades of gardening experience in Georgia.
