Don’t forget to feed the Hummingbirds!

Happy New Year, 2017

Accessible Gardens wishes you and your loved ones and very happy and healthy new year.

image of a hummingbird drinking from a feeder.

Don’t forget to keep nectar in your hummingbird feeders and make sure it doesn’t freeze.  You can make your own nectar with 1/4 cup of cane (not beet) sugar to 1 cup of water. Do not use red food coloring, or any other food coloring.  It’s detrimental to hummingbird health and can have fatal results.”

Please keep the feeders clean — without soap. You can use a 50/50 (equal parts water and vinegar) mixture of white vinegar and water. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the feeder if you decide to use vinegar.

Outreach says “During really cold spells wrap Christmas lights (the old style, not-LED) against and around the feeder.  Make sure that the ports are clear. The heat from the lights is enough to keep a full feeder from freezing, down to about 18-19 degrees F.”
