Plants for Birds in Hot Summer
Winged wildlife of birds look for the same things in a garden that people seek in a home: good food and drink, a bath, and a cozy place to bed down for the night.
Provide these amenities, and birds will flock to your garden ― perhaps even stay awhile.
Choose nectar-rich flowering plants. Add birdbaths, and some bird houses or shrubs to provide cover for birds in your garden.
To create your own backyard wildlife, set out some of the plants listed below, then provide a few creature comforts.
Portulaca, 10 O’Clock Plant
Passiflora Incarnata, Krishna Kamal
Bird of Paradise
Some Amenities we can provide to Birds and Butterflies :
Add birdhouses, and set out piles of nesting material for birds: pine needles and small pieces of string.
Birds need minerals and salts in their diet as well as sugar. One place they get it from is mud, so give them a permanent puddle.
Dig a shallow depression, line it with pebbles, and keep the soil moist.
Dust baths :
Birds like their dirt dry. They ruffle their feathers in it to rid themselves of parasites. Set aside a few square feet for them, bordered with rocks or brick, and fill the area with loose, sandy soil.
Tanning salon :
Butterflies enjoy basking in the sun. Provide some flat rocks for them in an area protected from the wind by shrubs.
Recommended Planters : Colorful Planters :
Add a splash of colors to indoor or table top plants at home and office with these colorful planters.
Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
Buy Decorative Pebbles :
Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch.
