    Thanks Jacqui, we are fine, lucky enough to have others in the Kapiti area with plants. Love th FB post today for the flowering plants, wish I lived in AKL!

    We have had the BEST summer with Monarchs this year. After no butterflies in the 2016-2017 summer I thought they were gone from our area. I had 5 x giant (bigger than me) swan plants untouched. Eventually I pulled out 2 and left 3 giant swan plants. This summer 2017-2018 these plants are stripped bare from feeding. What a joy to see all the chrysalis and butterflies again.
    Off to save seeds today, I refrigerate in paper towels as other members do, works for me.

    Hi,

    We still have 12 butterflies to hatch from our swan plants in Pukerua Bay. I released one on ANZAC Day and trust that the others will fly once able to.
