garden centre marks Save Our Butterflies Week
in the Burnham-On-Sea area who want to find out more about attracting
butterflies are being invited to a Brent Knoll garden centre this
week as it marks Save Our Butterflies Week.
To link in with the nationwide event, which runs from Saturday
July 24th until Sunday August 1st, Sanders Garden World is creating
displays and offering free advice on plants that appeal to butterflies.
General Manager Peter Burks told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Butterfly
Conservations Save Our Butterflies Week represents seven
days devoted to celebrating British butterflies and promoting
ways to stop their decline."
"We're delighted to be helping raise awareness for the organisation.
Butterflies are very important to gardeners because they feed
on flower nectar and as they do, they transfer pollen on their
bodies and legs from one plant to another."
During the week, visitors to the garden centre will be able chat
to staff about attracting butterflies into their gardens.
will also be able to learn about plants that will help encourage
butterflies, such as Buddleia davidii. The garden centre will
also be giving away 350 guides to British butterflies free of
charge, while stocks last. More
details about Save Our Butterflies Week are available here
on the Butterfly Conservation website.
