Aside from the fact that hummingbirds are a joy to watch, these fascinating birds can pollinate flowers that large and small-beaked birds can’t. Plus, they eat many pests that can ruin your garden. So, how exactly do you attract these tiny birds? Our friends at HGTVGardens.com share a couple of tips on how to get them to your yard in little time.
Fill your garden with plants hummingbirds love, like the yarrow. This plant blooms early in the season and can last through mid fall in average to poor soil.
If you’d like to take a different approach, try making a feeder using only white cane sugar, water and food coloring.
