Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve
This butterfly garden was constructed to:
provide visitors with an area where they have a good chance of seeing wild animals
provide the reserve's butterflies and bees with a nectar source
show people how to attract butterflies to their own gardens
demonstrate the close relationship between plants & animals
Because this demonstration area contains at least one of the caterpillar food plants of ALL of the butterflies that live in the British Isles, we think that this garden may be a world first!
