The Secret Life of Moths

Moths do a lot more work than  most people realize.  Yeah, nobody ever appreciates the night shift, but they keep everything running so the day can have  a shift.

As spring approaches, people begin planning their gardens.  Learn how to garden for moths.  Plant night-blooming flowers and caterpillar food plants.  Look up what butterflies and moths live in your part of North America, and find native plants to support them.

Do you have a moth garden already?  I have a white garden centered around a yucca, which is not quite the same thing but has a lot of overlap.  I know yucca moths are in the area because I can see little holes in the seedpods!
