WHAT ARE TREASURE TAGS?
Treasure Tags are a reinvention of your standard plant tags. Not only do they include the traditional horticulture information, they also include pictures of the treasures left behind and who left them.
With the pictures of the butterflies and moths that lay eggs on the host plant, and the caterpillars that they feed, you can confidently raise just about any butterfly and moth that plant hosts!

Direct Sowing Instructions:
- Prepare the seedbed by tilling or raking the soil to remove any debris and create a smooth, level surface.
- Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil and press them down gently. You can do this in early spring after the last frost, or in late autumn before the first frost.
- Once the seedlings have sprouted, thin them out so that they are spaced about a foot apart. This will give them room to grow and develop.
- Start sowing 2 months before the last frost.
- Add 2-3 seeds per cell and press lightly into moist soil and cover until signs of germination.
- Harden off in the spring by putting them in a shaded area and gradually exposing them to more sun for 2 weeks before transplanting.
- Space them about 12 inches apart.
