A good hummingbird garden takes more than just flowers:
Provide water for drinking as well as bathing
Create both sun and shade areas in your garden as they need a place to rest as well as a place to build nests
Hummingbirds must feed 3-5 times per hour. They will become reliant on your garden for food, but there will be times when there are not enough blooms to support them. It is a good idea to hang a feeder(s) in your garden.
If hanging more than one, they need to be hung 30 feet apart as hummingbirds are very territorial.
Never fill your feeder with anything but sugar-water (a mix of 1 part sugar to 4 parts water). Do not use food coloring and never use honey! Honey can develop a fungus which can be fatal to hummingbirds.
Always keep your feeders clean and filled!
