Birds are amazing creatures that play a vital role in nature. They are essential for spreading seeds to help trees grow and reproduce, eating insects that can be pests, and much more! When you care about birds, you help the environment.
Make your garden a bird haven by adding birdhouses, spreading bird seed, and making sure your birdbath always has water!
Bird baths make a lovely gift for gardeners because you can put them anywhere. In fact, many bird baths double as yard art, as well as functional outdoor features.

Hummingbirds are on their way to Houston! Let’s get your garden hummingbird ready!
Ruby Throated hummingbirds are one of the most common in Houston. Males are iridescent blue-green on the back, with a metallic green sheen visible only in good light. The breast is brilliant red, but the belly is whitish. Females are overall green, with iridescent green upperparts and dull grayish white underparts flecked with brown.
Black Chinned and Rufous hummingbirds are two other common types of hummingbirds we find in our Houston gardens. The best way to attract hummingbirds to your garden, and encourage them to return the following year, is to plant your garden with nectar plants. Hummingbirds will feed on a combination of flower nectar and tiny insects. They are especially attracted to tubular-shaped flowers and reds, oranges and yellows are favored flower colors.

Hummingbird feeders are a great way to attract hummingbirds to your yard. They have specialized tongues that enable them to suck the nectar out of flowers, and their high metabolism requires a high sugar diet. We have a wide selection of feeders you can choose from which vary in size, shape, and design.
Hummingbirds love to feed off of the nectar of hummingbird feeders. Hummingbird food is a liquid that can be used to help attract hummingbirds to your yard or garden. Hummingbirds are creatures of habit, and they like to visit the same place they’ve visited before. If you use hummingbird food in your feeders, they will come back more often, and if you offer them more than food, they will stay.
