Announcing Next Virtual Class: Fall Butterfly Gardening

Hi Everyone,

My next virtual class is Fall Butterfly Gardening and will take place at 7:00 p.m. CT / 8:00 p.m. ET on Sept. 16, 2020. Details about the class are below. Please share this information with friends, family, garden club members, members of other relevant local organizations, Extension Agents, etc.



Fall Butterfly Gardening


Butterfly gardening isn’t restricted to just the spring and summer. Butterflies and their caterpillars also need plenty of fall forage, especially in August, September, and potentially into October, depending on where you are located. In this class, we will discuss some of the management activities you can take and some of the flowers that you can plant to make your butterfly garden appealing to our fall butterflies. This class will be most useful for people in the eastern U.S., specifically KY, TN, and the surrounding states.
