These packets of swan plant seeds will let kids grow the plants that the Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on. A project that will last all summer long. A fascinating lesson in life cycles is watching a monarch caterpillar get fatter and fatter and then weave itself into a glassy chrysalis only to emerge as a stunning butterfly.
Growing swan plants is a great way to engage kids with gardening and mother nature. Each packet contains approx. 50 seeds. Get the kids to grow the plants on in little seedling pots for a month and then plant them out in the garden. They'll take 90 days to mature from transplanting.
