Sunflower hearts for garden birds

Sunflower hearts for garden birds are ‘the’ go to seed for most. A fast food but with more healthy benefits. When insects are in short supply, they provide a high energy, high protein alternative. Support feeding birds this oil rich food helps to keep their feathers and skin in tip top condition. Buying hearts means less mess under and around your bird table. When autumn arrives, stepping up feeding gives them the energy they need to make it through a frosty night. Short winter days and long winter nights mean that small birds have to eat efficiently to gain the most benefit.

Birds become reliant on supplemental feeding, so once you start it’s now advised to feed throughout the year. Adult birds break up food before giving it to their young, so it is safe to feed during the breeding season but do not put whole peanuts onto the bird table. You will see an example of them breaking up food in the video on the About us page. Sunflower hearts for wild birds are for use on bird tables, in ground feeders and in tube feeders, so lots of options. It’s also good to have food in different locations as some birds won’t mix with others.

NB: The packaging – A lot of research went into finding the most environmentally friendly option while still having the strength to hold the weight of product. You can put the bags into your home composting, garden waste bin or into your regular bin. It will take longer to compost at home, but will take approx 12 weeks in a landfill site. It is certified to the European (EN13432) for Industrially compostable packaging.

    I mostly went for these sunflower hearts because they were the cheapest option out of all the bird seeds but I’ve been so pleased with how popular they are!

    All the birds visiting my garden (starlings, blue tits, house sparrows, gold finches, pigeons and collared doves) seem to absolutely adore them! Highly rated by both the birds and me!

      Thank you for your lovely comments and taking the time to leave them. All the foods that I purchase for the mixes that I make are top grade products there are different gradings of sunflower hearts and nuts.

      Everything is bagged fresh or within a few days of it leaving me to ensure that your birds get the freshest food possible and the evidence of that is how the birds attack them as soon as the feeders are filled. Everything is done by hand and the peanuts and raisins for some of the mixes go through a food processor and then get sieved to make sure the waste elements are mostly removed so they too are very popular with the birds.

      As I become able to order larger quantities of the packaging then the price can be addressed but currently eco packaging costs significantly more than plastics to purchase.
