    Beauty is more than petal-deep. As the authors of this book point out, butterflies and hummingbirds add beauty to the garden. In my opinion, a garden made to sustain these interesting creatures is more than just pretty – it gives something back to nature. This guide describes how to attract butterflies and hummingbirds and provide essentials to keep them around. It offers many practical tips as well as background information on the species. The guide includes charts of plants which will attract and sustain hummers and butterflies throughout their lifespans, suggested garden designs, and an encyclopedia of hummingbird and butterfly species. It does not include a color photographs of each plant, but those can easily be found elsewhere. If you would like to devote a whole garden to hummers or butterflies, or just incorporate a few plants to attract them, this book is a good starting place and reference.

    Hoping for hummers! This is a great book. It’s choc-a-bloc full of information. If you want to attract butterflies and hummingbirds then it really has a lot of ideas on how to do it. I can’t wait to put the ideas into action in the Spring!

    It’s OK. This is an ok book for someone wanting to learn the basics about attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. The information is all there, but the packaging isn’t all glitter and glamour. Here’s a functional source of information, not a coffee table book. The pictures are good, but not striking or enrapturing.
