Hummingbirds are such fun to have visit your garden!

Here are several articles that will help you decide what to plant in your hanging baskets.

I would plant at least two types of plants in each planter. Something that grows more upright and another plant that cascades down. This will make an eye pleasing hanging basket for you and the hummingbirds to enjoy!
