Butterfly Gardening

Asked April 12, 2017, 4:02 PM EDT

We live at Homewood of Williamsport and want to develop a Butterfly Garden. We would like a list of plants that would help us to recruit and feed Caterpillars and Butterflies. It would be great to have some technical assistance as well. Thanks!

Take a look at this page on pollinators from our website: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/how-attract-and-conserve-pollinatorsnatural-enemies-you...
It has many links within with information as well.
Here is a gallery of recommended plants: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly/recommended-native-plants-maryland
If you have particular questions, you can ask us or go to your local Extension office's Ask a Master Gardener Plant Clinics.
