Bird Bath Cleanliness
I have read that a sprig of lavender in a bird bath will help reduce the growth of algae. I have had a difficult time growing a thriving lavender plant but have great success with rosemary. I threw a spring of rosemary in the bird bath water after cleaning it and the effect has been dramatic. Slight amount of algae. I've found articles saying rosemary is safe for birds but also that it has anti microbial and antiseptic properties. Is it ok for me to put fresh rosemary sprigs in bird baths?
