A garden for Bees and Butterflies


If watching butterflies float and bees industriously wallow in pollen is one of your favorite things, consider planting a garden of their favorite herbs: boneset, borage, buddleia, catnip, chamomile, coneflower, dill, hyssop, lavender, monarda, oregano, and parsley. The flowers of nearly every herb attract bees, so ruthlessly lop off flower buds before they open if you react severely to stings. make sure to collect herbs on an overcast day, the bees are more laid back. Many of the plants that attract butterflies also supply food for their larvae.
