Very hard to obtain: some available NOW!

We are taking orders now for whole egg batches of Irish Marsh Firtillary, for delivery in May/June. To rear these you need growing plants (potted or wild) of Devil’s Bit Scabious. The larvae also feed on Honeysuckle. Normally the larvae form a web in which they pass the winter. It may be possible to keep them warm and produce butterflies this year, but this should only be attempted by experienced breeders.
