Traditional gardening is a great source of pleasure for many, and those who have enjoyed this pastime may want to consider butterfly gardening. Creating a butterfly garden is an effective way to see more butterflies and to contribute towards the conservation of these brilliant creatures. This website provides a host of original material and websites dealing with the creation and maintenance of butterfly gardens and habitats. It is also important to realize that individuals need not have a great deal of free land in which to create a butterfly garden as well. One helpful aspect of this site is that it allows visitors the opportunity to learn about creating smaller gardens with less space, such as in a window box. Along with the basic information presented here, the site includes links to information on how to attract butterflies to the garden (provided by Colorado State University) and a link to an online forum for the discussion of plans that both provide livable habitats for butterflies.
