The Butterfly Garden

 

The subtitle of this book, Turning Your Garden, Window Box, or Backyard into a Beautiful Home for Butterflies, hints at what a little gem of a book this really is. It is a reader not a looker. And, it is very important reading for those just beginning butterfly gardening. It would seem as though Mathew Tekulsky has answered every question with a short to the point yet informative answer.

Chapters cover understanding gardening for butterflies by understanding butterflies. Mr. Tekulsky instructs us on all aspects of  how to get started, including which plants are needed for both larval food and nectar food.

There is a chapter devoted to activities which include photography hints, things to do with kids and building hibernation boxes.

Extensive appendices list 50 Common butterflies, where they are found and what plants they like. There are also lists of where to obtain butterflies and entomological equipment, as well as, butterfly organizations and recommended further readings.
