Attract “winged jewels” into your garden
The sight of a hummingbird in the garden is one of a gardener’s best moments, the highlight of an afternoon. So imagine how your sunny beds and borders will look with multiple “winged jewels” sipping at nectar stations and even visiting flowers. Our Hummingbird Wildflower Mix is designed to encourage that, by providing the native species hummers prefer.
Consisting of 15 species, the mix is specially blended to include varieties that do well in climates in various parts of the country. Including both annual and perennial varieties, all are open-pollinated, so they will set seed that you can collect or let self-sow for years of beauty.
To grow the Hummingbird Wildflower Mix, simply find an open, sunny spot, run a garden fork through the soil to loosen it, and broadcast this seed freely. Then water, add a hummingbird feeder if you desire, and your work is done. The annuals in the mix will bloom the first year, of course, and the perennials will establish and be ready for next spring. This is a long-term planting you will come to treasure.
Of course, hummingbirds aren’t the only winged visitors who will thrill to this mix. Native species and open-pollinated varieties are certain to attract the full complement of beneficial guests in the garden: butterflies, bees, ladybugs, and more. They are natural pest repellents as well, with the “good bugs” keeping the bad ones away. Use the Hummingbird Wildflower Mix near your vegetable garden or your most treasured plantings for a bit of extra protection.
Especially if your home is in an urban or suburban neighborhood, native plants may be in short supply. Pollinators cannot stay where good sources of food aren’t readily available. So restore the natural beauty and usefulness of the garden by adding Hummingbird Wildflower Mix to your sunny soil this season.
One packet of this mix covers about 50 square feet (1/4 ounce).
