Every spring (and even winter!), avid gardeners have their noses buried in seed catalogs, pondering how to narrow down their selections. If you want to try something different, might I suggest gardening for the butterflies? Caterpillars need food to become butterflies, so you may have to sacrifice a few plants in the line of duty. But think of the reward you will enjoy! If you prefer to stick to nectar plants, you will still be providing food, but only for adult butterflies.  This workshop may give you some new ideas on what to plant to make your garden a magnet for these colorful insects.
