This kit contains 38 plants which are carefully selected to provide food sources for both monarch caterpillars and butterflies throughout the growing season. This kit also works well for a multitude of butterfly and moth species. Plants are 1” in diameter plugs. Species may include a combination of the following types of plants: butterfly weed, swamp milkweed, whorled milkweed, New England Aster, false boneset, grey headed coneflower, stiff goldenrod, bergamot, mountain mint, prairie blazing star, sky blue aster, black-eyed susan, and sand tickseed. Species diversity is chosen by the grower and varies from year to year.
A planting diagram for a 4’ x 10’ garden space is included with this kit. You simply match up numbers from the flat to the planting space or you may adapt the design. Your new garden will take two to three seasons to reach maturity and full blooming potential.
