Gardeners World - Butterflies

Don't know if anyone else saw this on BBC Gardeners World last night? A glimpse into Matthew and Sally Oats garden.

Thanks for posting this, Mike; I must have missed it! Definitely appreciated by both myself and my better half (who is the gardener in my case also!).

Cheers,

- Pete

Yes, may I extend my thanks too, Mike, for this link.

It was highly intriguing, and what a garden Matthew and his wife have (unsurprising, I suppose, given Matthew's 'leanings').

Great to see his collection of Orange Tip pupae assembled in his foyer. Perhaps we should all seek out a few and 'contain' them over winter like this!

Really enjoyed the video, it's good to know about the different plants that attract the Butterflies besides Buddleia, thank you Mike. Goldie :D
