Creating a Butterfly Garden

Butterfly-GardenThroughout the summer months, Glen Burnie residents are sure to find a number of different insects throughout their garden. While some are bright and welcomed, others are simply pesky and unwanted. Those who have a garden wish to have more colorful insects visit, but just settle for having these pesky mosquitoes and flies instead. However, Glen Burnie residents could have a number of colorful butterflies throughout their yard if they decide to create a butterfly garden.

Creating a butterfly garden may seem complicated, but is really quite easy after a visit to Evergreen Gene’s. Our helpful staff and fully stocked store will provide you with everything you need in order to create a butterfly garden for your Glen Burnie home. Before you visit us, conduct some research to discover what butterflies can be found in your area and which you want to attract. Once you have some targets, you can then find out which flowers they prefer. If you don’t plant flowers that attract butterflies, your butterfly garden won’t work.

A native Glen Burnie butterfly is the Monarch Butterfly, which can be attracted by Milkweed. The state butterfly is known as the Baltimore Checkerspot and can be spotted around White Turtlehead flowers. You also want to plant flowers that will attract caterpillars as well as butterflies, to ensure a bright garden in the future.

When you visit our Garden Center be sure to purchase:

  1. Flower seeds
  2. Top soil
  3. Mulch
  4. Gloves

We carry anything you may need to begin your gardening journey. Feel free to ask our trained employees about our inventory and what products will work best with your project. When it comes to purchasing supplies for your garden, you won’t have to break the bank with Evergreen Gene’s. If designing your garden is proving to be a challenge, Evergreen Gene’s offers Landscape Design. This includes a detailed drawing to show where your plants and trees will go; this eliminates any surprises after the flowers are planted.

Evergreen Gene’s has been keeping Glen Burnie residents green for over 50 years. We make sure our employees are educated so they will feel comfortable answering any and all of your gardening and landscaping questions.
