Our fabulous Butterfly Garden Kit is supplied with a voucher for live caterpillars which is great if you are buying for a gift or not sure when you want to start raising your butterfly family. (Your gift recipient will have nothing extra to pay to redeem the voucher!)

This educational kit gives children the opportunity to watch close up the miracle of 'Metamorphosis'. Observe caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies.

The Live Butterfly Garden Kit Includes:

  • Pop-up, reusable 30cm tall mesh Butterfly Garden habitat perfect for butterfly viewing!
  • Feeding Pipette
  • Complete Instructions
  • Certificate for five live caterpillars
  • NB The live caterpillars are sent out between March and mid September

Your 5 caterpillars will arrive in a clear plastic cup with all of the nutritious food they need. Keep the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size! After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into pupae.

Raise Your Very Own Butterflies and Release into the Wild

Once the pupae have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat which you can make realistic with stalks and flowers. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies. By which stage your children will be just so excited!

The Butterfly Garden Habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing! When not in use it folds flat for easy storage.     

Ages 4+

Really novel present that everyone was excited about


I thought the product was overpriced and it was a bit of an inconvenience having to send off for the caterpillars after receiving the product.It would be great it that step could be removed somehow.


birthday present for 9 yr old She loved it will be good to do over school holidays


Not only my two grandchildren, aged 5 and 3, thoroughly enjoyed the experience so did their parents and ourselves.Would seriously consider purchasing other products in your range.


Absolutely great! Our grandchildren were fascinated by the metamorphosis of the caterpillars and loved watching the butterflies as they were released. Brilliant!


They are excited about seeing the process.




Four beautiful butterflies released this week. Excellent activity. Real opportunity to observe a life process. Couldn't believe how tiny the caterpillars were when they arrived and to see the metamorphosis was wonderful for my grandchildren. They have asked to do it again!!




We had the caterpillars and they thrived and the kids enjoyed watching. The crysalid stage was next and only three made it. We are now waiting for the butterfly's but nothing after a week and no movement any moreğŸ˜ž. Not sure we are going to get butterfly's, they seem to have died. So sadly it again has been very disappointing. I think we must have been very unlucky with both stick insects and butterflies because I know they work from talking to others. However my experience would not make me recommend them


I didn't like the fact recipients parent had to pay any money when it's a gift.
Liked the product and think it's both interesting and educational. Much better than learning about butterflies from a book.


Very poor value for money!
I would not recommend your site.






To my granddaughters' delight, five Painted Lady butterflies emerged and they greatly enjoyed watching the development from caterpillars.


Present so don't know


The is a gift that will enhance an interest in nature and foster a sense of responsibility for the care of living creatures.


Children were enthralled watching the caterpillars grow, turn into chrysallis and then into beautiful butterflies. Watching their faces as we set them free was amazing. We will do this again next year.


I was shocked when I received this to discover that it was just a net and that the caterpillars were not included and now have to send away to receive them and pay the postage. Being in Spain, I imagine this will be quite expensive and take quite some time to get here.I feel like I have wasted my money. I am very disappointed with this product and will not be ordering from you again.


My son never recieved the live voucher with hes kit. Even after numerous emails requesting 1 be sent out to me. I have been ignored. Not happy
