Before you plant milkweed

Jill Staake reported recently about the pros and cons of planting milkweed. She is all for butterfly gardens, but she also expresses concerns for the home gardener who is looking to help the Monarchs.


In practical matters, Jill cautions,"Common Milkweed [...] is considered very aggressive."


She goes on to say, "If you have a [...] latex allergy, you should think twice before planting Common Milkweed. "


Thanks Jill. That's right folks. Let us grow the milkweed. We can stop the Monarch extinction together.
