    It’s started later this year… but it’s happening. I am getting phone calls, emails, texts, messages and Facebook posts from people who have too much swan plant and want to get rid of it OR they have too many monarch caterpillars… OR the reverse: they want food or they want caterpillars.

    So I’ve set up a Facebook page called Monarch and Milkweed Matchmaking.

    https://www.facebook.com/Monarch-and-Milkweed-Matchmaking-934201763370682

    Now I know that not everyone does FB so for anyone who posts here their needs, I’m happy to link that post to the FB page.

    Let’s maximise the resources and build up the monarch numbers. Feel free to spread the word (and the link).

    Swan Plants: 6 Mature Plants 2 M approx. These plants are in my garden easily accessible and can be dug out with little effort. I need them removed as I now have an oversupply of Swan Plants in my garden. My garden is in the Epsom Area.

    I’m in Hamilton, I have some seedling swan plants which anyone who wants to grow them on can have. Also have plenty of food which can be cut & put into jars of water for immediate consumption by cats.

    I live in Northland, Donnellys Crossing…..loads of Swan Plants, very few Monarchs, I have seen 1 butterfly, she laid a few eggs and later I saw 2 caterpillars but that’s it….I keep on top of the wasps and predators, but am in need of some caterpillars.
