Want to attract more hummingbirds and butterflies to your yard?
We can help you select the perfect feeders and, after the fun you all had in prior years, we've asked Patty and Terry from Designer Landscapes to come back and bring a great selection of plants to attract all the winged wonders. For one day only, these expert landscapers will be here to tell you everything you need to know.

Planting to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators to your yard.
Presented By Designer Landscapes
• Designer Landscapes will set up a one-day garden center in our outdoor space, offering perennials, annuals, and shrubs for sale for you to take home and plant. They will tell you everything you need to know from what to plant, where to plant, how to install the plants, and how to care for them. They will also have potting soil, peat moss, and compost available for purchase.
• BONUS: If you purchase a flower pot from Wild Birds and plants and potting soil from Designer Landscapes - we will pot up your flowers during this event at no charge. You can just take them home and start enjoying!
