    I try to plant so there is something for birds , bees and butterflies throughout the section and all the year somehow. I always plant milkweeds but net those as that will specifically protect any caterpillars . For the veg garden I always have a good dose of marigolds and lavender. Around the property boundaries we have planted buddleia precisely for butterflies and also bottlebrushes as they add festive colour whilst helping wildlife at the same time.
    There is salvia and verbena under the kitchen window and for splashes of colour & scent I have wallflowers & rudbekia.
    It may not be an easy care garden so much but it is a garden planted with a thought that to attract butterflies, birds and bees adds to the enjoyment.
