Senior Pollinator Garden Program
Save Our Monarchs is offering a new program for people living in Senior Living Centers, Nursing Homes and Hospitals.
What is included in the seed packets?
Common Milkweed (Asclepias Syriaca)
Pollinator Seed Packet
This is a complete Wildflower Garden mixture, featuring two varieties of Milkweed, and includes all of the Perennial and Annual seeds needed for a great looking garden.
This perennial mix includes several varieties of host and nectar sources.
In the first year, the annuals will bloom with a beautiful display of colors and nectar for our pollinators while the perennial plants will begin to establish their root systems.
In the second year, the perennials will begin to put on leaves and most will begin blooming.
By the third year, the perennials will be fully established and be in their full glory as the photo from my garden displays!

Today I was conversing with an old friend who lives in Rupert ID. along the Snake River below Minedoca Dam. Our conversation got around to Monarch butterflies and milkweed. She recalled how there used to be thousands of Monarchs there every year, but now they are all gone due to the practice of spraying and killing off all of the milkweed growing along the vast network of irrigation canals in the area.

Can anyone take some of the caterpillars or milkweed seeds I have in GROSS ? ? ?

How long does it take to get seed packets to Pennsylvania once ordered ?

All the caterpillars I had (about 100) all died when they went to hang. Only one or two got to the chrysalis stag! No weed poison, no insecticide was around the plants! What could have happened? HELP

Evidently, certain tropical strains of milkweed can harbor a parasite that can be harmful to the caterpillars.

I live in a retirement center in downtown East Los Angeles. The name of the center is Hollenbeck Palms. The grounds are lush and green with various rare trees and plants. Some of the members have been looking into this very thing: saving the monarch butterflies. This is a wonderful idea and we would like to learn more.

I have a butterfly plant that has dozens of monarch catapilars feeding on it. Will they cocoon on this plant?

Great article. We be sure to share with our staff.

I question the inclusion of Asclepias syriaca in this mix for a senior garden. It spreads by rhizomes, as you know, and can become aggressive and weedy. Why did you not use Asclepias incarnata? it is a well behaved plant, common to over 40 states. Otherwise I applaud your mix of species, some of which will do better on certain soils and some will do better on other soils.

The program will provide seniors with the opportunity to learn about the importance of pollinators to the environment, and to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to help support these vital creatures. In addition, the program will offer seniors the chance to connect with other members of the community through shared interests in gardening and the natural world.
