Hi, my 12 year old and I are new to this butterfly game and we have a question. We had 6 butterflies hatch over the last 3 days, but as the weather is raining and coldish here and will be for the week, we are worried they will starve as they dont seem in a hurry to leave. We gave them watered down honey which they drank, but one got stuck into a blob of straight honey and then sat there like it was in a diabetic coma for a few hours, while the others wandered around! Is honey ok for them to eat? We have no flowers in our garden but will be planting a butterfly flower garden over the next few weeks so we are ready for next season.
