Blenheim Palace is encouraging visitors to spend some time in its stunning Butterfly House, which has undergone a huge transformation over the last six months with newly installed smart technology and improved environment for its inhabitants. In addition, new plants and different fruits are being trialled to potentially provide the butterflies with everything they need to thrive and live a longer life.
From Africa, Madeira and South America each plant was meticulously chosen and planted by newly appointed head gardener, Andy Mills, who worked closely with Chris Horne, Senior Gardener who has looked after the Butterfly House for over ten years.
This year, Blenheim Palace has partnered with Butterfly Conservation in support of their annual Big Butterfly Count, which took place earlier in the summer
