Gardens Take Flight

There's nothing quite like a garden aflutter with wild butterflies in the afternoon sun. Attract your neighborhood beauties with this sand-and-water puddler, designed to hold on to natural minerals after water evaporates.

Its shallow well of recycled glass holds sand or rock salt along with a teaspoon of water. When the water evaporates (in under a day), butterflies are attracted to the minerals left behind from the hard water and sand/salt. Once butterflies know where they can find these minerals, they return regularly. Place it in a conspicuous nook to transform your outdoor space into an enchanted garden.

Designed by Jo-Anne and Gerald Warren. Handmade of stoneware and recycled glass in Canada.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. Each stoneware piece is made in an environmentally friendly fashion.

Handmade Recycled
Made from
recycled glass, sand, stoneware clay
Measurements
Approx. 8.5" L x 8.5" W, 3 lbs. 6 oz.
Care
To attract butterflies to your garden, place the butterfly puddler in a sunny, protected place. Fill the well with sand, and then cover with water. Butterflies crave the minerals & salts left behind as the water evaporates. Refill with water when needed. You can also place overripe fruit on the puddler, or add a pinch of salt to the water to attract the butterflies.
Notes
Comes with sand and instructions for use. Will not crack in the snow or fade in the sun.

This is a great addition to my native-plant butterfly garden. The monarchs found it in 2 days and led the way for other butterfly varieties. The puddler looks lovely and aids me in attracting even more butterflies by fulfilling their salt and mineral needs!

It's been closed to 2 weeks since I purchased the Butterfly Puddler. It's beautiful and exactly the type of item that I love to display in our backyard. BUT, even though I have followed the detailed instructions included, to the t, NOT ONE single butterfly has made use of it. I live in an area where we have butterflies galore because of fragrant and tasty vines and trees for the butterflies, and purchased the Puddler believing that the butterflies wouldn't be able to resist it. Unfortunately, I should've been contented since Mother Nature was/is already doing her job of attracting them "naturally". In essence, I do not recommend the Puddler - it's a pricey item purporting and failing (in our experience) in its aim.

                We only just placed it in the garden yesterday, so I can't comment on how well it works. But it certainly does look nice and adds to the overall aesthetic. Feels sturdy and I expect it will be able to withstand the weather, at least during the warmer months.

                      This "butterfly puddler" is one component of a special garden for children and adults alike to watch nature unfold right in your own backyard. It is an opportunity to learn about the various types of butterflies that reside in your very own backyard. Pairing this with other products at uncommon goods, like the "ladybug house" or a set of personalized stepping stones is a great foundation for a custom-made, backyard habitat.
