Monarch Butterfly Gardens
Benjamin Vogt is passionate about planting natives in combination to provide authentic habitat for wildlife while simultaneously creating beautiful garden spaces. Benjamin joined us on Garden Chatter and we focused our conversations on monarch butterflies.
Benjamin has been working to provide habitat for monarchs in his own garden and to educate others on how to do the same. He shared his wealth of knowledge on creating monarch butterfly gardens.

We would love it if you joined our Garden Chatter events “live” so you can ask questions and share comments.
When you join the conversation as an audience member, you have access to a Q and A comment box right on your screen. We will see the questions and comments and be able to acknowledge and respond to them during the event.
Tune into Garden Chatter next week as Bren Haas and I will chat with amazing gardeners and experts in their field.
