ButterflyDo you have a deck, patio, or sitting area by your garden and wish you had hummingbirds, butterflies and bee’s humming around? This coming Tuesday, June 2nd at 10am we will have Chip Utsey hosting our Tuesdays at the Tree event. He will help teach us about the best plants, feeders and food for maximum attraction to your garden. We ask for you to join us, share your stories and give us tips you have as well to increase all of our knowledge of keeping an active garden of color and liveliness.

In today’s post, we have included some tips and information on hummingbirds and butterflies to give you extra information and knowledge before attending the event:

Attracting hummingbirds and butterflies

We suggest planting an array of flowers and plants to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. How about feeders? Hummingbird feeders are good but why not give the little beauties some natural food that looks great too. Here is a list of suggested flowers for your garden –  Verbena’s, Trumpet Vine, Columbine, Phlox, Crossvine, Butterfly Bush, Lantana, Hibiscus, Cardinal Flower, Bee Balm, Penta, and Black and Blue Salvia.
