|Like many gardeners, I love to see butterflies in the garden, and more and more I am growing plants which are attractive to Butterflies, and Bees. Without their natural habitat Butterflies will continue to decline. There is a growing awareness that Butterflies are threatened because their natural habitats are being distroyed by the changes on our countryside. Gardens can be important " Green corridors" with plants to help sustain the population of Bees, Butterflies and Moths. Butterflies and moths are important and seven out of ten butterfly species are in decline. Four butterflies and over 60 moths became extinct last century.
