Free Butterfly Garden Seeds
Live Monarch will send 15+ Butterfly Garden seeds including Milkweed and growing instructions even if you can not afford a contribution just mail us a self addressed stamped envelope, one per household. A save the Monarch contribution is greatly appreciated to help offset the cost of the many seeds we give away, personally plant and plants we provide to schools.
One dollar goes a long way to help Monarchs, and we will send 50+ seeds per dollar as a thank you. If you need more seeds, send a larger contribution with your written request. (These same seed packs sell all over the web for $2 – $4 for only a few seeds). We send out two Northern Varieties called Syriaca and Speciosa which can survive the winters at the end of the growing season, and Asclepias Curassavica (southern milkweed / red and yellow flowers) to appropriate areas. It is a favorite egg-laying plant which grows quickly and will sprout many seed pods. From time to time we may have other types and do our best to send them back to the regions where they were gathered. Just request the type you want with the drop down menus below. Our staff will choose the appropriate type if you prefer. Please include a small note below as well if you have a special request. We read every one and do our best to meet your needs. Please give what you can so we can provide materials to as many as possible.
You will receive seeds and full color Monarch rearing instruction sheets, milkweed growing instructions and our heartfelt thanks. There are no butterflies in your return envelope. The information sheet is preprinted for you to keep as a reference sheet and to share the education to help Monarchs and butterflies in every life stage.
