    Attracting hummingbirds into your garden can be done with a number of different techniques. Garden birds such as hummingbirds can be enticed to your garden bird feeders if you have knowledge on what they like. For a guide on how to attract hummingbirds to your garden and what bird supplies you need, see the following. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    Garden Bird Feeders
    Bird supplies such as this are a good helper. One feeder in your garden is simply not enough if you are hoping to attract hummingbirds in large numbers. To improve your chances, you should have at least 3 garden bird feeders in different spots around your garden. This gives hummingbirds more of a chance to find the garden bird feeders as they fly by.

    Be sure to check these feeders regularly. Bird supplies like this will need cleaning and refilling.

    Flowers
    Another way to attract hummingbirds is to hang certain flowers in hanging baskets. Attracting hummingbirds will become easier if you hang petunias, especially brightly coloured red ones. Hummingbirds love bright colours. Fuchsias are another good option of flower to attract hummingbirds.

    Seasonal Plants
    As well as these flowers, you could also plant seasonal flowering plants to attract hummingbirds. It is important to remember that certain plants are great at attracting hummingbirds in the spring and summer seasons, but winter must be catered for too. So make sure to plant flowering plants that can flower in the winter too such as pineapple sage. Garden birds such as the hummer will really love to visit your garden if there are plenty of colourful flowers around.
