Butterfly Garden Course and Conference

page-01-230x327Most Gardeners adore Butterflies.  They add a special magic that enhances almost any garden setting especially throughout the warmer months and sometimes year-round in milder parts of New Zealand.

Since ancient times Butterflies have been associated with the soul and are often considered a symbol of eloquence and grace; freedom and happiness; unfurling glory, inevitable change and passionate transformation and transcendence.

The New Zealand countryside and gardens host up to 24 species of Butterflies, 13 are native. There are also 700 species of Moths, some of which are colourful and large but less seen as they are mostly nocturnal. Most all these Butterflies and Moths that are here are lovely and well-worth encouraging in our gardens.

By far the most captivating and showy are the Monarchs. These delightful Butterflies are so beloved that there is a Monarch Butterfly New Zealand Trust dedicated to their care and preservation. http://www.monarch.org.nz/monarch
