Butterfly Milkweed


Notes: Provides habitat for and attracts Butterfly's, Hummingbirds, Bees and other beneficial insects. Grows well in well-drained sandy soils producing brilliant orange flower bunches from June through August. Deer resistant and low maintenance plants.


Instructions: It is important that butterfly weed seeds experience several months of cold, moist conditions in order to germinate properly. You may start butterfly weed seed indoors or out. For outdoor sowing, begin with a prepared bed and a sowing in late fall (mid-November). Germination in 7-35 Days Indoor or out scatter the seeds evenly over the surface and press them lightly into the soil. Cover them lightly with a 2mm of germination mixture and moisten the surface thoroughly. The best way to propagate Butterfly Weed is to let it resow itself naturally. Once planted it does not like to be disturbed so transplanting is not always the most effective.


Medicinal: All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested, which is what provides Butterflies with their advantage through the immunity they have developed.

Money Plant - Money Plant will produce long spikes with clusters of small, sweetly scented lilac flowers, on grayish green foliage. The strong stems are multi-branched and are long lasting as a cut flower in both bloom time and vase life. After the outer shell has dropped, the seed pods provide a unique,  rice paper thin, round silver dollar that provides interest in any dried flower arrangement.   Alstroemeria - Beautifully bi-coloured and veined, these deer resistant, and scented flowers are a must have for any cut-flower enthusiast as they are a common bouquet filler. The plants are rhizomatous perennials. Once the seed has formed a rhizome the young plant starts growing from the main rhizome. Each year another 5 to 7 rhizomes form from the main rhizome, giving it the ability to send up between 50 to 70 flowering stems per year once established. This seed is not certified but grown in the same garden.   Foxglove - Foxglove produces spires of large white tubular flowers with gently speckled throats. Flowers 1st year from early sowing and plants are hardy biennials.Useful as cut flower or wild flowers.
