Beautiful butterflies are reared at this butterfly farm in Kent.
Several shots of wild flowers growing in a garden. A young man, Michael Dickens, picks some flowers and takes them into a house. Various shots show flowers and plants in a garden and greenhouse, being cultivated for butterfly food at this butterfly farm. Good C/Us of butterflies on flowers and furry brown caterpillars inching along leaves and nibbling on them.
Michael takes some caterpillars from the greenhouse out into the garden and ties a muslin bag around them onto the branch of a tree; this way he can collect them when they're ready to go into the larval stage. Butterflies and moths are seen in bins in the garden; the top is covered by net, with cotton dipped in honey resting on the top as food. Several shots of colourful and exotic butterflies that appear to be pinned to flowers - ugh! A silk moth is seen fluttering as it sits on someone's finger.
