Laundry Basket Butterfly Nursery

Convert a mesh laundry hamper into a butterfly nursery! Find a mesh laundry hamper and cover the bottom few inches with an old sheet. Cover the top of the hamper with an old sheet, cut the sheet to the size needed, poke holes around the sheet and tie a string through the holes. Set as many milkweed plants in the hamper as will fit and relocate caterpillars into the nursery. Set the nursery in the sun and water the milkweed plants regularly.
