Providing a hummingbird friendly environment in your garden is a wonderful way to help support the local hummingbird population. Providing pollinator friendly plants and flowers will encourage hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and other insects and animals to visit your garden and you will be able to experience the joy of seeing new species turning up throughout the year.
Hummingbird nectar feeders provide a focal point for feeding and allow you to enjoy your hummingbirds at close quarters. However! It is an ongoing commitment to provide wholesome nectar every day and keep the feeders immaculately clean so that the health of your hummingbirds is not damaged.
Hummingbird Nectar Recipe
4 cups of boiling water
1 cup pure cane white granulated sugar
Stir sugar into water until dissolved. Allow to cool before dispensing.
Store excess in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Only use pure cane sugar, NEVER brown sugar or honey NEVER add red dye – all these will damage the livers of your hummingbirds.
Clean feeders every day if possible, but no more than 2 days between cleans
Thoroughly scrub feeders including feeder ports to clean. Soak in very dilute bleach weekly to kill mold spores. Vinegar or hydrogen peroxide can also be used. Rinse very thoroughly after disinfecting.

Before Christmas we decided to send a Christmas card and hummingbird face masks to the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
It was so delightful to receive a thank you letter.
