The wider habitat has been lost flowering rose. I grow lots of stuff and I do have butterflies but not in number. Anything I do is limited by living surrounded by an agricultural desert with everything except the crop of the moment srayed to extinction. Sprays for insects, sprays for slugs, sprays for god knows what. The sprayer was out there twice in the last week.
Gardens should create wildlife corridors but they are, as you say, too tidy for that
