Plants to attract butterflies to your garden

It is important to introduce more wildlife to any garden, as they can help your garden to flourish.  Butterflies, bees and other insects are pollinators for plants, so you should provide pollen-rich flowers for them to visit.  Perrenials and shrubs are great choices for plants, as nectar and pollen are available through the growing season. You don’t need a large garden to be able to help the butterflies, nor do you need to spend lots of money!
