How to Create a Hummingbird Container Garden with Vertical Planters

Choose a sunny spot for your vertical planter. Select colorful flowers like fuchsia, salvia, and petunias to attract hummingbirds. Ensure good drainage for the plants.

Install the vertical planter securely on a wall or fence. Use a lightweight potting mix for the plants. Water regularly to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.

Add a variety of nectar-rich flowers to your container garden, such as bee balm, columbine, and penstemon. Include some trailing plants like lobelia or verbena for added beauty.

Hang a hummingbird feeder near your vertical planter to supplement the flowers. Keep the feeder clean and filled with fresh nectar to attract more hummingbirds to your garden.

Maintain your hummingbird container garden by deadheading flowers to encourage more blooms. Prune any leggy growth and fertilize the plants occasionally for healthy growth.

Enjoy watching hummingbirds visit your vibrant container garden! Sit back, relax, and observe these delightful birds sip nectar and flit among the colorful flowers.
