The Butterfly Nectar Garden at Prinknash is part of the walled garden owned by the monks at Prinknash Abbey, near Cranham, Gloucester GL4 8EX.

  • Members of the Branch will be on hand to answer questions about butterflies and plants and Butterfly Conservation in general.
  • A children’s butterfly hunt
  • Plants for sale
  • A variety of nectar-rich flowering plants, grown to attract butterflies and other insects, on view in the garden
  • Live moths caught overnight in a light trap (and released unharmed later in the day)

This is in the middle of the Big Butterfly Count (see https://bigbutterflycount.butterfly-conservation.org/) so if you haven't already done anything why not start here.

No charge for the garden entry.  There is a large car park and a café.

The nectar garden is always open to the public even when we are not there.
