Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Tailor the menu at your bird feeders to discourage unwanted visitors. Thistle seed attracts finches, pine siskins and redpolls, but most sparrows, squirrels and blackbirds do not care for it.
    Safflower seed attracts cardinals and discourages squirrels and sparrows. To discourage pigeons avoid ground feeding and use seed mixes without cracked corn.
    Before filling feeders for the first time this fall, thoroughly clean them using a 10% bleach to water solution. Do the same for birdbaths and houses.
