Gardening with Children

School Zone


In Britain there are 59 species of butterfly that breed here plus up to 30 other species that come here as occasional or regular migrants from elsewhere in Europe, we all love butterflies, they are unique little creatures of varying shapes and sizes with dazzling vivid colours, but they need our help. Butterflies are far less common now than they were 50 years ago; much of their natural habitat, wildflower meadows, heath land, woodland and peat bogs has been lost to industrial and housing developments and intensive farming. Your garden, however large or small, could be a haven for butterflies, providing food and shelter; even a window box or container garden can help.

In this month’s competition we are giving you the opportunity to win a Butterfly habitat and a Butterfly/Bee nectar feeding station for your School garden.
