Place This Popular Houseplant Outside To Attract Hummingbirds To Your Yard

Begonias Are Easy To Grow And Natural Pest Control. Begonias are easy to care for despite their elegance. Bright sunlight, moderate watering, and damp but not saturated soil are needed for these plants. In warmer months, feed them lightly  

and keep them out of drafts and direct sunlight. Deadhead begonias regularly. Deadheading flowers helps the plant grow new stems and blossoms, even if they may eventually fall off.

Pollinator plants draw birds, bees, flies, and moths to the garden to disperse pollen, but they also attract many helpful insects. These natural pest control insects defend your plants.

Hoverfly larvae kill aphids, thrips, and beetles, which are common garden pests. Hummingbirds are fantastic pollinators, but begonias also provide free pest management.

How to Make a Hummingbird Refuge When trying to attract hummingbirds to your yard, start with careful planting. So begonias bloom spring through fall, choose sunny spots with partial afternoon shade.

Hang baskets near windows to see hummingbirds up close. Begonias offer colour to flowerbeds and borders. Plant a variety of begonias with varying bloom times to keep hummingbirds interested and give nectar.

Consider yard elements beyond plants. Avoid crowding your plants since hummingbirds prefer ample spaces to manoeuvre. Consider adding coleus, caladiums, and impatiens, which thrive with begonias.

A few strategically positioned birdbaths can attract hummingbirds to your yard and provide them with water. With some preparation and blooming begonias, you can turn your backyard into a hummingbird playground that benefits all your plants.
