Hummingbird Haven Pot

For hummingbirds a small container garden can provide a smorgasbord of nectar-rich flowers.  When attracting hummingbirds, the shape of the flower can be just as important as the colour.  We will create a simple container garden with plants to provide a bounty of beautiful blooms that will last the entire season.  This will be a 14” container and will thrive in morning sun and afternoon shade.  I will also share a few hummingbird feeding facts!
