|National Bird Feeding Month|
|FROM WILMA: In 1994 Congressman John Porter of Illinois recognized that February weather can be tough on birds. Food supplies dwindle, snow often covers available food, and frigid weather exhausts their energy. Congressman Porter made a resolution proclaiming February as “National Bird Feeding Month”.|
As we spend more time at home, bird feeding can be a source of entertainment and calmness. Children can take part in this activity, too. It can be educational as they learn to identify different species and their food preferences.
The most important thing we can do for birds and other wildlife is to plant natives that provide cover, seeds, nuts, fruits, nectar, larvae, and other insects. From my kitchen window I am enjoying watching birds feed on native grasses and dogwood berries. Winter is a great time to scope out areas in your landscape to plant pollinator and bird-friendly plants.
Bird Feeders, Bird Houses, Bluebird Houses, Bird Food, Pocket Naturalist Guides, and Peterson’s Field Guide for Young Naturalists are available in our Garden Shop. Blue Ridge Audubon Society and Audubon North Carolina are great resources for learning more about birds.
|On Groundhog Day, Panxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, but Staten Island Chuck predicted an early spring, Snow is on the ground, but we can see the signs that spring is inching closer. We'll have to see which groundhog is correct! What is your vote?|
In the Garden:
- Fertilize cool season lawns with a slow-release fertilizer.
- Prune grape vines.
- Spray All-Seasons Oil on fruit trees (Temps must be above 45 degrees and remain above freezing for 24 hours).
- Start cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower seeds now. Our seed racks are stocked!
- Put up Bluebird Houses.
- Lightly prune evergreen shrubs.
Heads Up! Pre-emergents have arrived and can be applied next month. Corn Gluten, a natural pre-emergent, is currently in stock, too. Apply pre-emergent just before the forsythia blooms. Get it now so you are ready when the time comes!
