This Butterfly Biome comes with a free butterfly guide as well as a packet of wildflower seeds to help you attract them into your garden.
The butterfly biome is a complete habitat designed to provide opportunities for both feeding and roosting for butterflies & moths.
The interior space can be divided using lengths of dry bark, twigs or similar, to create sheltered spaces for roosting and/or hibernating (use the removable dowel to retain the filling).
There are 2 feed cups in the fold-down tray. The smaller yellow cup is for feeding, use our special butterfly food which is full of vitamins, or a sugar/ water solution. The larger cup may be used with ripe fruit such as mashed banana.
The fold-down tray may be closed when not in use or during the winter season when it helps insulation. Availability of a nectar solution in early spring may also help early bumblebees survive if the weather turns cold.
Site the box at ground level or up to 1.5m high in a sunny, warm, sheltered position out of the prevailing wind and preferably close to flowering plants.
The biome is made from naturally durable timber for longevity and does not require preservation treatment, however should you wish to maintain the appearance of the biome the exterior may be painted annually with a water-based paint.
