Here are some of the plants much loved by butterflies:-
And perhaps, if you really want to help, you could plant their host plants. Nettles (I know, we gardeners do not like nettles) but they are the host plant for many of our butterflies.
I understand you do not want them in your borders, but a pot of nettles in full sun could make such a difference. Wouldn't it be wonderful if gardeners across the UK put a pot of nettles in their garden :)
I do so hope you are enjoying this unusually warm October......
Happy Sunday safari
