Hello, I spent the whole of today creating my latest conservation project, due to the decrease in butterfly populations last year I decided to do something about it. I planted loads of butterfly attracting flowers in a set patch and havefenced it off from rabbits! I will let you know what i see. Very Happy

Well done, Josh. What flowers do you suggest for attracting butterflies? I'd love to see more butterflies in our garden.
