Wonderful plants and service
Kay Curtin from WI wrote (July 16, 2012):
To the staff at Wayside, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the quality of your plants. We own an orchard and plant business, are Master Gardeners, and I write gardening columns for local newspapers, so I understand the difference between a well-cared for plant and one that's barely hanging on. Everything that I've ever received from you has been top-notch. As a matter of fact, you are the only company that I still order perennials and small fruit from, as your plants do so well, even here in northwestern Wisconsin. Your staff is always courteous and your orders correct and timely, and the plants come to me packed well and thriving, unlike most other mail order plant companies that I've dealt with over the years. I will continue to refer my firends and readers to your company. Keep up the excellent work!
  • Butterflies like a lot of sunlight, so locate your garden in a sunny area.

  • If you live in a windy location, plant your butterfly-attracting plants near a building, fence, or hedge to protect them.

  • Plant a variety of nectar-rich plants, as well as shrubs and evergreens for shelter.

  • Since many butterflies and native flowering plants have co-evolved, try to put in some that are native to your area. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center provides lists of plants native to states and regions.

  • Certain colors are particularly attracting to butterflies – red, yellow, pink, purple, or orange blooms that are clustered or flat-topped, with a short flower tubes are especially attractive to adult butterflies.

  • Avoid using pesticides, especially around nectar-producing plants.

  • Provide a shallow source of water – try a birdbath with pebbles lining the bowl.

  • Place a rock in a sunny spot for butterfly basking and resting.

  • Create a "puddling area" by digging a shallow hole filled with compost or manure where rainwater will collect and release essential salts and minerals.

  • If you want butterflies to breed in your garden, put in some caterpillar food plants, such as parsley, milkweeds, asters, thistles, violets, clover, grasses, and Queen Anne’s Lace.

  • Since butterflies need nectar throughout the entire adult phase of their lives, try to create a design that will allow for a continuous bloom – when one stops blooming, another starts.
