Joel’s Gate Keeper Butterfly Pack – WYG Special

Help individual species of butterflies! Butterflies rely heavily on certain plants for specific nectar and certainly as a vital larval food source for their young. One of the reasons for the decline in butterflies is a lack of host plants, so here's an easy way to provide what they need. These special packs, chosen by Joel to be the most valuable plants for this species of butterfly, will contain a mix of the following plants available in 3, 5 or 7 quantity packs - each in 9cm pots. --- Marjoram, Hemp Agrimony, Oxeye Daisy, Yarrow, Small Scabious, Sneezewort, Water Mint --- Our nursery team will choose the best available selection of species at the time of packing your order.  If you are keen to have a particular species included in your pack from the list, please let us know in the order comments and our nursery team will do their best to include this in your pack wherever possible.
