The Hummingbirds are arriving here in Maryland. I saw one in the garden today in my azaleas. Here is how I create a welcoming environment to attract Hummingbirds.
It’s real simple and cheap to make your own nectar for your feeder.
2 cups water
1/2 cup white sugar
Bring water to a boil and stir in sugar. Cook until sugar dissolves.
Allow solution to cool before filling your feeders.
You may refrigerate the solution for up to one week.
Fill your feeder half way. Check daily for a week to gauge how much solution you need.
Clean out your feeders once a week. Toss out leftover sugar solution and refill with fresh solution.
Place feeders in a shaded area. This will help prevent the solution from fermenting.
Do not use dyes or any other types of sweeteners they are harmful to Hummingbirds.
The only hard part is capturing a picture of these fast flying little birds!
When I am not out in the garden I made delicious recipes and refreshing cocktails. Be sure to check out the rest of the website!
