This exciting title is for butterfly lovers and gardeners who not only want to create a butterfly-friendly garden, but also want to support butterflies and moths in order to maintain healthy populations. Author Brenda Dziedzic noticed that there were far fewer butterflies around today than she saw in her childhood. Starting in her own garden she set out to learn why and what she could do to rectify this. Raising Butterflies in the Garden is the outcome of what she learned about these fascinating insects and the native plants they depend on. In this book, Dziedzic shares the vast experience she gained in helping butterflies thrive through all stages of life. She shows readers how they can do the same - no matter the time of year or the size of their property - by providing all of the information and practical guidance they need. The book features more than 500 colour photographs showing all stages of each of 25 butterflies' life cycle - from egg to adult - as well as the host and nectar plants they rely on. Featured butterfly and moth species include: Swallowtails - Black Swallowtail, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and Spicebush Swallowtail; Whites/Sulphurs - Cabbage White, Great Southern White and Clouded Sulphur; Blues - Eastern Tailed-Blue, Karner Blue and Summer Azure; Brushfoots - American Lady, Monarch and Red Admiral; Skippers - Common Checkered-Skipper, Silver-spotted Skipper and Wild Indigo Duskywing; Giant Silk Moths - Cecropia; Sphinx Moths - Hummingbird Clearwing; Tussock Moths - Gypsy Moth. Like the highly successful How to Raise Monarch Butterflies, Raising Butterflies in the Garden is bound to become an excellent seller in retail settings as well as a popular reference in libraries and schools.
