The Gloucestershire Butterfly Conservation branch opened it’s first butterfly nectar garden at The Monastery Garden at Prinknash in 2010. So far well over 100 different varieties of plants have gone into making a very attractive area within the old walled garden that was originally tended by the monks of the Monastery. The garden is visited by a good variety of butterflies, moths, bees and other insects.
Entrance to the monastery garden is free; the rest of the garden is also interesting with apple and pear arches and fish ponds. You could also visit the popular Bird and Deer Park which is next to the monastery garden or the café with its home made cakes.
Butterfly Conservation volunteers will be available to answer questions about butterflies (and moths!) and how you can help them.
