Butterfly Nectar Recipe – If you want to attract butterflies to your yard all you have to do is feed them. Either by plant or providing nectar for them to feed on.

Monarch butterflies especially need extra food supplies during migration. They need all the energy they can get to make the migration to their warm weather destinations.
