Raise LIVE butterflies and release them to Nature with the Butterfly Garden kit. This kit contains all you need to hatch five Painted Lady Butterflies. It perfectly compliments the study of insects and life and living processes - for use in the classroom or home. The Butterfly Garden includes reusable hatching net, (30cm tall), a certificate for five Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui L.) caterpillars and full nutrition, feeding pipette and full instructions. The life cycle of the caterpillars takes approximately three to five weeks.
Your kit includes a certificate that you redeem online or send back in order to obtain your five live caterpillars. Please note that there is an additional £2.99 postage and packaging charge which needs to be paid when you are ready to order your caterpillars. The caterpillars are dispatched from March until mid-September only to addresses in Europe. You can also order refill caterpillars sets when you are ready to start again (sold separately).
Suitable for ages 4 and up.
