Feed the birds – naturally

Happy National Bird Feeding Month. Did you know that bird feeding is the second most popular hobby in the United States (behind gardening)? More than 65 million Americans participate annually, according to a recent Census report.

One way to support our feathered friends without the upkeep of a bird feeder is to increase the native plants in your yard – giving birds seeds and cover in the cold winter months, and nectar in the warmer months for hummingbirds and other pollinators.

It may be cold outside, but this is a perfect time to think about adding bird, bee and butterfly-friendly plants to your garden and landscaping! View or print out our Grow Smart Pollinator Guide and bring it to your local garden center.
