How to make your own butterfly feeder. Homemade Butterfly Feeder Written by Bonnie Singleton According to a study published in the June 2003 issue of "Conservation Biology," there are 561 known butterfly species in the U.S. and Canada. Not only are these insects beautiful, they're important pollinators and vital to the health of their natural habitats. You can encourage these gentle creatures to visit your yard by using easy-to-make butterfly food and feeders. Butterfly Food and Nectar Think "rotten" when choosing butterfly food. Butterflies like a variety of food sources, especially over-ripe fruit and rotting vegetation. If you own an apple, plum, cherry or pear tree, allow fallen fruit to ferment on the ground to create a favorite feeding spot. Look in the quick-sale area of your grocer's produce section, and you might even get the produce manager to donate one or two unsaleable pieces of fruit. Consider saving extra bananas in the freezer, which you can defrost and place in a feeder at any time. Make your own butterfly food by mixing a solution of 4 parts water to 1 part granulated sugar, boiling the mixture until the sugar is dissolved, then letting it cool. Extra solution can be stored in your refrigerator for up to a week. An alternative recipe is to cut up a dozen over-ripe bananas into chunks, add two cans of cheap beer, one or two bottles of molasses, and a pound of brown sugar and let it ferment for about a week. The easiest recipe of all is to save any overripe fruit, add a squirt of honey, blend it coarsely in a blender, then divide the mixture into freezer containers. Butterfly Feeders Take a ceramic or glass pie plate, plastic or terra cotta plant saucer---or any dish with a sloping rim---and suspend the plate with flower pot hangers or a macrame-style holder made from household twine. Decorate around the twine with the stems of silk or plastic flowers to make it visually appealing to butterflies, and hang the feeder from the bough of a shady tree, before adding butterfly food. Replace food if it dries out or becomes moldy. Place brightly colored yellow and orange kitchen scouring pads in the dish with the liquid butterfly food solution. You'll attract butterflies and give them a resting place while they drink. Making a jar feeder. Use any small glass jar that has a tight-fitting lid. Punch a small hole in the lid of the jar using a small nail and a hammer, then cut a portion of a sponge and pull it through the small hole, making sure it fits tightly. Soak the sponge with a sugar-water solution, and fill the jar with the solution as well. Use string to tie around the jar to make a hanger, then hang the jar with the sugar water upside-down so that the butterflies can feed on the juice from the sponge.

Just about anything can be grown using container gardening. Be it a flower or vegetable, there's no reason that it can't be grown in a container.

Container or pot gardening can be a fulfilled dream to a greener home. Growing plants in pots provide flexibility to arrange the flowers and plants in different design at your balcony, porch or window sill. When you don’t have a compound or garden to work with, pot gardening is the ideal solution to a green home. What tools should I buy ? For a start, you need to have the right tools. Get a trowel, soil scoop, watering can or a hose and a pair of garden scissors. If you don’t want to dirty or roughen your hands, get a pair of gloves. If you want to minimize exposure to sunlight, get a straw hat. And last but not least, buy suitable pots. How to choose a pot ? The pots available in the market are either made of ceramic or plastic. The type of plant will determine the size of the pot should be used. Deep-rooted plants require deeper pots as shallow pots restrict the grow of roots and dries them out quickly. For a guide, not a rule, the width of the pot should be one third to half the height of the full grown plant. 1) Ceramic and terra cotta pots Made of clay, these pots are durable and heavy. They are most suitable for gardening in the open or outdoor. The heavier weight of this pot when compared to a plastic pot makes it steadier and will not topple over easily when strong wind blows against it. Clay is porous, so water will tend to evaporate from the sides. Over time, moss will eventually grow on the moist surface. Maintenance work to scrub out the moss is inevitable. A better option for ceramic pot is the glazed ceramic or terra cotta pots. Glazed pots are waterproof and insulated, hence more sustainable against crack and last longer. The well protected roots will grow better. Since water does not evaporate from the sides easily, watering the plants can be less frequent and moss does not grow so easily. These minimum maintenance pots are good for working executives or a busy person who often have no time to take care of the garden, and yet desire a greener home. 2) Plastic pots Nowadays, plastic pots come in different colour, sizes, shapes and styles. There are quite hardy, and can be used indoor and outdoor, though the pots will last longer in shaded outdoor garden. They are good in conserving moisture and light, hence easier to handle. 3) Galvanized pots Galvanized pots are made from treated metal to prevent rust. Since they are light and absorb heat easily, they are more suitable for plant grown in the shade or indoor. These pots are usually made to look like a pail, tub or window box. Depending on the design, these unique pots give refreshing outlook and normally capture the interest of cottage garden or a modern urban garden designer. Often than not, these pots do not usually come with drainage holes to function properly as a garden pot. The solution to this problem is as easy as describe below. How to nail holes on galvanized pots ? a) Turn the pot upside down b) Place the pot on a few pieces of clothes or newspapers to keep it in place and reduce vibration (this ensure the nailing process will not distort the shape of the pot) c) Use a hammer, knock a nail onto the bottom of the pot d) Repeat this a few times to make more holes Other types of pots Pots can also be made of wire to form various design of a wire basket, such as hanging pots. Foam, fibreglass and coconut shells are also great for flower pots. In fact, any household items that can hold soil can be recycled to become garden pots. Some may not last long, such as wooden box and easily-rusty metal container, but if re-designing your garden is part of your interest, temporary pots are refreshing and creative.
