Birds are one of the most fascinating creatures to watch and their chirps are often the first sign that spring has arrived. As a gardener, there are several ways to create an environment that will both attract and help our winged friends. By planting a garden that provides food and shelter for birds, you will create a beneficial, lively habitat in your own outdoor space.

This week we are excited to continue Charlie Nardozzi’s guest blog series. He is a nationally recognized garden writer, speaker, radio, and television personality. In this week’s blog, Charlie gives his expertise on how to create a beautiful Butterfly Garden. Stay tuned throughout the gardening season for more guest bloggers from the gardening world.
Butterfly Bushes emit a sweet fragrance that isnâ€™t just heavenly for our noses, but attracts beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. We planted one right outside our window at American Meadows and were amazed at the multitude of wildlife that it brought for us to enjoy.
