I went to some of our local garden shops to see if anyone had any short shepherd's hooks available. No one had any left!
I need some to hang Irish Spring soap from in the well garden next year--it's supposed to keep away the deer who don't like the smell any better than hazel does
We have blazing stars blooming out along the town roads, klm. I should keep an eye on them to see if the hummers like them! It would be a plus if they provided a little nectar for your visitors.
But regardless, the birds will probably ignore your flowers once they find the bounty of the feeders.
