We are passionate about horticulture, and specialised in native Australian plants to attract butterflies to your garden, be it your back garden, inspirational gardens, school gardens or sensory gardens, anywhere that butterflies can enhance lives and have a chance at touching the hearts of people, young and old.

We once stocked over 60 different climbers, shrubs, bushes, ground covers and trees.

These Butterfly Host Plants are often difficult and time consuming to propagate and tend to be overlooked by the bigger nurseries. Some of the plants are on endangered plant lists.

Our aim was to be part of the education of the metamorphosis of butterflies and to proliferate Butterfly Host Plants around the South East Queensland area and beyond.

If there are any Butterfly Host Plants you would like to purchase try your local small council run native nurseries or your local branch of S.G.A.P Society for Growing Australian Plants.

We are still available to answer your butterfly questions
