Swan Plant  -  Asclepias

NAME:
Swan Plant - Asclepias

DESCRIPTION:
Like those from other garden centres, our swan plants are sprayed with insecticide during the growing process and need time to establish before you put caterpillars on them. Give your plants a good wash before you plant them. Once planted, cover them with a fine mesh cloth (something the monarchs can’t lay their eggs through) and leave it on for two plus weeks. This will ensure the plants are can be eaten by caterpillars and also allow them to get to a suitable size to handle the caterpillars.
