Invite More Butterflies To Your Yard With One Delicious Herb
Parsley is a great addition to your garden not only for its versatility but also for its ability to attract the caterpillars that transform into black swallowtail butterflies.
By welcoming the caterpillar to your garden, you'll increase the likelihood that black swallowtail butterflies will find your garden a safe haven and spot for breeding.
For a healthy butterfly habitat, simply grow extra parsley for the summer and autumn months. Sow parsley seeds in March, April, and May for a harvest from July through October.
Place your parsley in the ground or a container in a well-lit spot in the garden, ideally with around six to eight hours of direct sunlight. Parsley does best in acidic soils.
