West Chester PA feeders, when?

I'm in West Chester PA. I have a decent hummer garden but of course nothing for them is blooming yet. My Holly is blooming & the bees are all over it. I actually thought I saw a couple hummers & got excited but I now believe they were simply big bumble bees. I'm a teacher & while school is in it hard for me to get time to deal w/ feeders but I get so much joy from them in the summer so I don't want to miss an oppratuniy to attract some to my yard. My question is, when do I need to have them out by for my best chance to attract them to hang w/ me for the summer?
Thanks!
JD
