'Approved by Butterflies'

Approved By Butterflies Seal-FA


The Moths and Butterflies of New Zealand Trust has been working with gardening stores throughout NZ so that they can better help you plant for butterflies. Our ‘approved by butterflies’ stores will be exhibiting our ‘approved by butterflies’ seal shown above. Store staff will know the best ways of getting the most out of your swan plants and how to plant appropriately for monarch butterflies. They will also be aware of the most appropriate plants in the store to provide nectar for monarchs and our other pollinators, as well as host plants of some of our native butterflies and moths. Some of these tips are available here on Monarch Health.
