Building A Butterfly Garden – Planting the Native Butterfly Plants – Part 2

It was really fun in the “part 1” video seeing how the garden was formed and how the soil was layered for building a butterfly garden. Now in Part 2 we get to see how to install the Ollas. These water saving devices are a super cool addition to the garden. Drake White, The Butterfly Lady, also teaches us about the native butterfly plants for this climate in Texas. She describes the purpose for each butterfly plant and about which butterflies love them!
