Episode 51-Bees & Butterflies 2014

Botanus Garden Club - Episode 51

April 24, 2014

We've got a special 'double-pack' episode for you this week in the Botanus Garden Club. Today we're talking Bees and Butterflies and letting you know how very important these pollinating insects are to your garden.

Learn about why it's essential to encourage these little creatures to visit your garden and find out what plants they love that you can grow for their benefit - and yours!

But wait - that's not all.

We've also got a Bonus Episode for you to enjoy. Pam & Elke spent an afternoon last summer visiting a busy bee hive. You'll have fun watching them clean the hive and retrieving the honey! Be sure to watch 'Visiting a Bee Hive' and share it with your friends.

Congratulations to this week's winners. The question we asked was: On which plant do Monarch Butterflies lay their eggs? The answer is: Milkweed - Asclepias tuberose.

We look forward to seeing you again next week in the Botanus Garden Club!
