The Big Butterfly Count Top Tip Number Two

20th August 2022

In honour of the Big Butterfly Count (Friday 15th July – Sunday 7th August), we are sharing our top tips on how to help the winged insects in your local area.

2. Cut out peat-based compost Many gardeners use peat-based compost, as it is a cheap and highly effective material for growing many different plants. However, the way that it is sourced is harmful to the environment, and butterflies and moths especially.

Decreasing demand by choosing peat-free alternatives will aid butterflies, as well as the environment as a whole.
