Earthbound Gardens is proud to be a Monarch Way Station.
These pictures show a glimpse of the habitat that we have created to encourage the survival of monarch butterflies. In addition to choosing a wide variety of both host plants and nectar plants, we are diligent in our efforts to encourage gardeners to consider leaving a little wild milkweed in their gardens. Wild milkweed doesn't get weeded out of any gardens at Earthbound. We also have added stands of asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Weed) and asclepias incarnate (Swamp Milkweed) in stands around the property. As a result, we witness the whole life cycle of monarchs.
