July is a great time to sit outside and enjoy the rewards of your gardening efforts.
Many plants will be in full bloom, providing a feast for the eyes as well as a nectar buffet for butterflies and other beneficial insects.
It is now you will start to notice how successful certain plants are at attracting different species. Make a note of the most popular to inform future planting decisions.
Don’t forget to dead-head fading blooms to keep your flowers and the butterflies coming back throughout the season.
