Regular price $ 21.99

This seed kit contains 6 varieties of flower and herb seeds that are favorites of butterflies.

The varieties included in this seed collection are:

  • Mexican Sunflowers: 
  • Tropical Milkweed Yellow
  • Tropical Milkweed Red
  • Curled Parsley
  • Bronze Fennel 
  • Cosmos Sensation Mix

Parsley and Fennel plants are host plants for the butterfly larvae. These two herbs are also great in the kitchen. The Bronze fennel is also a lovely garden plant adding color and stature to mixed plantings. Two colors of Tropical Milkweed will act as host plants for monarch butterflies. The milkweed will provide food for the developing caterpillars as well as nectar for the adults. The Cosmos and Mexican Sunflowers will bring in swarms of swallowtail butterflies and are great for cut flowers. All seeds are fresh from the 2016 growing season.

The seed collection and seed starting supplies are packed in a recycled cardboard gift box. The box measures 5x5x3 inches and features a color photograph from the garden. The seed kit includes 6 individual kraft paper envelopes, 6 peat pots, 6 peat pellets, and 6 wooden plant markers. Detailed growing instructions are included with each seed variety. This is a great gift for experienced and beginner gardeners.
