I live in Omaha Nebraska next door to two neighbors that plant giant three season gardens. They plant every type of plant possible for this area and even some that aren't supposed to survive here like creeping myrtle. They have three varieties of Butterfly Bush, Honeysuckle on trellises. The one neighbor even goes out into our local ditches to get wildflowers to plant in her garden. They both spend hours on the gardens since neither has a job outside the house and they never see hummingbirds. I even hung out feeders for a couple of years without success. The one neighbor has decided they don't come this far North but I know they do because my Aunt had full hummingbirds feeders in the summer. The one neighbor has a pond with running water, and the other keeps her bird baths fresh. They've had these large gardens for at least five years. How do you get Hummingbirds to come in?
Any ideas would be appreciated!
