This is a good time to get your
"Hummingbird Gear" out!
Check your feeders for damage or leaks and maybe replace them.
Make sure they are clean and you have all the accessories you need such as an Ant Moat to keep those pesky ants off your feeders or a "Hummer Helper Helmet" to shade your feeders in the hot sun.
When your feeders get busy, fill them less often with our "All Natural and Safe".....Nectar Defender!
Later in the season you may want to serve and extra helping of Protein with an Insect Protein Feeder!

A Few of the Many Positive Reviews for Nature Hills!
"I ordered plants from Nature Hills 5 or 6 different times this spring and I was extremely happy with all the plants. They arrived very well packaged and in excellent condition. Nature Hills is my favorite of the 4 nurseries I ordered from this spring. The plants were often higher priced than other nurseries, but the plants were very large. They were also packaged better than the other nurseries. I'm willing to pay a little more for better quality.(Although the prices was sometimes higher, there was often a discount code or free shipping.)" - Paula S.
"I ordered primropp yellow lilacs. They arrived within 10 days. I was very impressed by the packaging the plants arrive in. I was very impressed by the stock of bare roots that arrived strong and healthy. The instructions that came with how to plant a bare-root plants plan excellent. I will definitely order from Nature Hills Nursery again."-Laureen K.
"A very good experience. Ordering
was a breeze, and although Mother Nature delayed a few products, shipping was quick. Any issues we have encountered have been dealt with, and their customer service has been awesome."-Patty T.
"Trees and plants arrived in great shape. They are really growing fast, just keep them watered. Would buy again, wonderful service."-Edward B.
"Plants were healthy and arrived in excellent condition!"-Abigail H.

Our Featured Product!
Our Very Popular Faceted Ruby Glass Hummingbird Feeder.
We have been using this feeder for 10 years now and I can't keep-up with the nectar.
It's not a large feeder but our hummingbirds love it.
I would have to say it is one of the top 3 in popularity voted by our resident hummers!
I have a video of the feeder in use on the product page.
