The butterfly and bee nectar feeding station is a colorful and attractive nectar feeding station for butterflies and bees in the garden. The central feeding sponge can be charged with butterfly food mix or it can be soaked in a sugar/water solution to encourage colorful butterflies to the feed station and to help increase survival rates. The feeding station also features a landing platform with additional feeding cups to offer an additional feeding area.
SitingSite near scented/attractive plants in sheltered position on a fence, wall, post or pergola, preferably to catch the morning sun.
