Nettles for Butterflies

Posted: 03/03/2013 at 10:11

here we use to have a abundance of butterflies  they use to fill the buddleia s and were here for many years in numbers,but now i am lucky if I see one.Since gardens have become tidier and less and they built on the playing fields the decrease in numbers has been dramatic.What ever the reason ,I have tried growing all butterfly loving plants and nettles(they are useful),the numbers have never recovered.
