Birds, Bees & Butterflies: Great Plants for Attracting Them to Your Garden
Gardens are wonderful places to enjoy for their beauty, tranquility, practicality and functionality. Big, bright beautiful blooms invite the eye to dance and wander throughout the flowerbeds and container gardens. The delicate scent of fragrant plants and herbs awaken the senses and encourages one to stroll and meander the garden in search of the sources. Gentle sounds of trickling water, tweeting birds or buzzing bees add yet another level of curiosity in the garden. If you have been looking to elevate this activity in your garden, consider adding trees, shrubs, perennials or annuals to specifically attract birds, bees and butterflies. This will delight all visitors to your garden!
By providing birds, bees and butterflies with food, shelter and safety, they happily reward your efforts by pollinating your flowers and giving you flittering, colorful displays to view in your backyard haven.
Here are some tried and true tips to encourage birds, bees and butterflies to visit your garden and, perhaps, stay a while.
