Attracting Butterflies & Hummingbirds
Watching Hummingbirds & Butterflies in your garden is not only fun to watch, but a great hobby!  With these excellent shrubs, vines, and trees, you'll be entertained for hours while the hummingbirds & butterflies will definitely appreciate and return for a great meal!

Tips:
Adding Hummingbird Feeders to your garden is an excellent way to attract more hummingbirds to your yard.  Make sure to have fresh nectar ready every couple of days. Do not use honey or other artificial sweeteners as these can be harmful to hummingbirds.  Hummingbirds don't like competition so keep ants and bees away with ant guards and bee guards.  Place your feeder near brightly colors shrubs of red, yellow, and orange to help attract our little feathered friends.

Butterfly Habitats are an excellent way to attract butterflies to your garden.  These habitats simulate the natural crevices butterflies hibernate in. These should be mounted on a pole or post and in partial sun.  Planting red, yellow, orange, and purple near by will help attracted these beautiful creatures.
