ATTRACTING HUMMINGBIRDS TO YOUR YARD
Tuesday, July 12, 2016
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
U.D. Paradee Center
The right types of flowers and insects tops hummingbird’s menu. Did you know that our sugar water feeders are only a supplement to them? Insects, as their only protein food source, are critical to the survival of both adults and baby hummingbirds. In this workshop, Linda Sperry, Kent County Master Gardener, will discuss hummingbirds, the correct feeder and plant sites, what plants attract hummingbirds, and recommended native plants. You’ll see examples of how attracting these friendly tiny birds can have a hugely positive impact on our yard and the wildlife habitat. To register, call 302-730-4000.
