In most of the United States, hummingbirds have returned to their summer homes and breeding territories. You can attract and support hummingbirds on your property with a simple recipe of 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. Simply heat the mixture lightly and stir until the sugar dissolves, let it cool to room temperature, and then fill your feeders for hummingbirds to enjoy!
Improve the allure of your home by dressing up your walkway, porch and terrace with hanging flower baskets that boast springtime color and fantastic foliage. Although hanging flower baskets liven up small and drab spaces, they seem to be harder to keep alive since they are confined in small pots and hanging in the drying air all season long. However, with a little bit of dedication and the right amount of sun, water and fertilizer, your hanging basket will last well into the fall. Keep your plants healthy and happy by following these helpful guidelines.
