Plants for Attracting Birds

Birds are fascinating creatures. We could spend all day watching them flit about, building nests and singing their songs. Birds are one of the best organic ways to keep your plants safe and are more than happy to snack on Hornworms, Japanese Beetles and more. There are plenty of ways to attract birds to your garden (bird feeders, houses and baths to name a few), but having plants that provide shelter, nesting materials and food are an easy way to attract and keep birds in your garden, year after year!
