You Can Help Bring Back Monarch Butterflies

Usually, hundreds of millions of monarch butterflies, each weighing less than a paperclip, travel some 5,000 kilometres from Canada to Mexico--the longest insect migration on Earth. But monarchs are in deep trouble, and need urgent help.

Here's a link where you can get milkweed seed basically for free:

Although his does not relate directly to the Monarch problem. I recently made a decision. With this horrible winter in NJ, most of my andromedia have been ruined. They will be replaced by butterly friendly bushes.

Whatever you do, do not buy from Lowes or Home Depot as they sell plants grown from seeds treated with neonics which kill pollinators! :(

Forgive me, I'm too tired to type in all the petition links but check out my submitted news for them if you will.

But whatever you do, buy from small, reputable companies and buy organic.

Noted with thanks for this great article. Will definitely be getting more milkweed plants. Monsanato has had a great deal to do with the dying off of the beautiful Monarch Butterflies. Thank You Cher.
