It is your responsibility to ensure you have:

  • Knowledge of raising Monarchs (and thus a good understanding of metamorphosis)
  • An adequate supply of nettles – or ability to acquire more.

Note: Preference will be given to those who have a caterpillar castle (or similar) and have undertaken the Create Butterfly Habitat course on-line. For those who have not raised Admirals before, we suggest that you start out with Yellow Admirals.

Eggs come with full instructions and attached to a piece of card which should be hung on a nettle leaf. They will be sent Fastpost and only to an address where the mail is monitored daily.
