Our first guest speaker for the year will be Jo Hammond, a long time BOGI member and regular contributor to the BOGI newsletter who has recently been featured on ABC’s Gardening Australia.
Jo runs Butterfly Host Plants, a boutique plant business from her home in Ferny Grove, dedicated to propagating and selling plants especially for caterpillars and butterflies. Through her photography background she maintains a successful facebook page, dedicated to the plants in her own butterfly garden and the butterflies that call it home. She will be talking about the importance of butterflies in our gardens, explain their life cycles and because butterflies are very host specific, which plants to grow to attract them and keep them coming back.
