Product description

A guide to creating a miniature tropical rainforest in a greenhouse or conservatory, and populating it with butterflies. The authors have been growing tropical plants and butterflies for 20 years. Here they describe how to grow bananas, passion flowers and many other exotic plants as a safe and natural habitat for monarchs and swallowtails and a host of other tropical butterflies. There is practical advice on how to care for the butterflies at every stage of their life cycle, so that you can learn about their fascinating lives, take part in their conservation, and wonder at their beauty, without leaving your own home.
