Hummingbird Garden Seed Gift Pack Pollinator Mix of Perennial Flowers.
Delightful Hummingbird – Wild Garden Flower Seed Mix Pollinator Garden Seed Mix – Gift Set of Perennial Flowers
A Gift of Natives – The Natural Gift
The best way to invite hummingbirds to your garden is to fill it with lots and lots of colorful annual and perennial flowers. These hovering small birds are lovingly referred to as hummers and are particularly fond of the color red, purple, pink, yellow, and blues.
Keeping their preferences in mind I have tried and tested the following seed mix and have been thrilled with the results for several seasons.
Sowing these native seeds in your garden, school, or local park can help start a garden from a piece of waste ground, better results will be achieved if the area is cleared of all perennial weeds and the soil lightly tilled before sowing seed mix best-sown Fall thru Spring.
I read that wildflower seeds can be hand-sown on fresh snowfall, that way you can see your spread and as the snow melts the seed becomes trapped in ready prepared bare earth. Do not recommend trying this on a slope as your flowers will all gravitate downwards.
Natives are tough hardy plants that will survive all but the poorest conditions, roadside verges are often strewn with seasonal displays of wildflowers so invite them home to a corner of your garden.
Bright colors, red, purple, and orange are known to encourage hummingbirds to visit.
Mix selected after years of observing hummingbirds feeding in my own urban backyard.
I have selected these nectars filled Summertime blooms proven to attract hummers.

I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.
1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights
4) Bright windowsill
I like to grow in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.
Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.
