Gardening for Butterflies & Moths


This is a new area of the website that we hope you will contribute to.

  • What plants do you find work for butterflies or moths in your Sussex garden?

  • Are there some that you've heard are good but you never have any success with?

  • Have you seen butterflies or moths nectaring on a particular flower?

  • Do you have any photos - taken in Sussex of course!

Email garden@sussex-butterflies.org.uk with all your tips, photos and questions.

Our first three sections are below, and we will then add to the site over time.
