Growing Your Own Birdseed

February 7, 2014

Awhile back I suggested you add shrubs and trees to your landscape that attract and feed your birds.  (click here to read).  Watching the birds in our yard during the recent snow here in Atlanta eating seeds from our Pink Muhly Grass I realized my plant suggestions just scratched the surface.

Last week when we had snow here in Atlanta I watched birds eating seed from the clumps of Pink Muhly Grasses in our landscape.  These grass clumps are brown (dormant) this time of year, however there must have been plenty of seed for the birds based on the activity.

This feeding frenzy reminded me that I recently ran across an article from Karen Hager, who writes the Down To Earth Garden Column for The Roanoke Times (in Virginia), offering advice for growing your own wild birdseed.  Click here to read the very useful information she passed along about growing food for her feathered friends.
