Attracting Hummingbirds In Your Garden

You can attract hummingbirds to your garden by just planting the right types of flowers this fall.

So put away your bird feeder and head on out to your local Nursery.

Sharon Smith at Blue Moon Gardens in Chandler near Edom tells us to plant very bright flowers that have a tubular shape.

Sharon suggests planting Cuphea David Verity, Salvia Indigo Spires or Firebush Hamelia Patens.

Be sure to have a compost rich in nutrients and manure so they grow well.

Water well at first or when it is very hot.

Remember when planting your flowers, dig your whole the depth of the planter it came in at the nursery.

The hummingbirds will then be at your garden before you know it.
