Gardening for Birds

Spring arrives March 20th and with it our feathered friends.In preparation for their arrival,scour garden centers for plants wildlife love.Be sure to refer to the seasonal plant profiles,as well as plant tags.Plant tags provide information on varieties that are especially attractive to birds and butterflies.
Prepare gardens and plant annuals,perennials,trees and shrubs that will attract wildlife.
Remove and compost seed heads,dried foliage and any other perennial remnants that stayed in the garden over the winter.The birds have likely picked the seed heads clean.
Prune summer-flowering shrubs before growth begins to encourage bushy growth and plenty of blooms for hummers and butterflies.
