  • The local toy and teacher stores have them here. I think you order the worms separately. Amazon had some, too.

  • I am looking forward to the input here because I was going to post a similar question about people's experience with them. I figured that I would follow my seeds schedule and shoot for the butterly release around Memorial Day when the last calculated frost would be.

  • Depends on the type of butterfly and your climate.
