Seeds provide a great source of nutrition for birds. They are high energy, and easy to feed. Wild bird seed mixes like this one are ideal for those hoping to feed a variety of garden birds throughout the year. They provide much-needed energy for birds during fledgling and breeding seasons, as well as during the Winter months. Opting for a mix over straight seeds makes them even more versatile. This is partly because a few different species of bird favour different seeds.

FAQ Title 1

How should I feed mixed wild bird seed to birds?

FAQ Content 1

This bird seed mix is suitable for seed feeders, bird tables, ground feeders. 

To feed our bird food mixes, simply scatter the seeds on a bird table or ground feeder, or place inside your seed feeder. This will allow birds to easily access the seeds. During rainy seasons, seeds that get excessively wet can sometimes clump together. This is no issue for birds, which will happily eat them, but it can cause blockages in feeders. To avoid this, use a covered bird feeder

Our mixed bird seed blend can be fed to birds all year round. To provide more energy to birds during Winter months, you could also opt for one of our high energy seed mixes. These contain the same selection of bird foods, but with a higher ratio of black sunflower hearts and chopped peanuts. These are great sources of fat for birds, which is helpful during colder months and they are also edible for softbill species such as robins and blackbirds. 

If you are looking for other foods to put out for birds in the Winter, suet products -- such as fat balls, suet blocks and suet pellets -- are also a popular choice. 

FAQ Title 2

Which seeds attract which birds?

FAQ Content 2

One benefit of adding mixed bird seed to your bird feed selection is that you will be able to attract a variety of wild birds to your garden with it. 

For example, small seeds, such as millet, attract Tree sparrows, House sparrows, dunnocks, and collared doves, and Chaffinches. Flaked maize is more likely to attract blackbirds

Equally, soft-bill species such as robins, and blackbirds cannot eat whole seeds that still have their original husk. If you are hoping to feed these species, then it’s best to use sunflower hearts or seed mixes that contain them. 

For more information on which seeds attract which birds, see our 'which birds eat' section below. 

FAQ Title 3

What seeds can you feed birds?

FAQ Content 3

You may be wondering what seeds you can feed birds. There are a variety of seeds you can feed to wild birds:

  • Sunflower (or sunflower hearts and chips, which have had the husk removed)
  • Rapeseed
  • Safflower seeds
  • Niger seeds
  • White proso millet
  • Shelled and cracked corn
  • Milo or sorghum
  • Golden millet, red millet, flax, and others

All Vine House Farm seed mixes are based on either oil-rich black sunflower seeds or sunflower hearts. Sunflower hearts are simply black sunflower seeds without the husk.

FAQ Title 4

What are the best seed mixes to avoid growth?

FAQ Content 4

If you want to avoid seed growth, you can buy our no-grow seed mixture. This prevents fallen seeds from sprouting in your garden's ground or flower beds. 

FAQ Title 5

Which birds eat seed mixes?

FAQ Content 5

Seeds are a popular choice of food for wild birds. Including mixed bird seed in your bird feed selection is ideal for attracting a variety of these birds into your garden/outdoor area.

FAQS

How should I feed mixed wild bird seed to birds?

This bird seed mix is suitable for seed feeders, bird tables, ground feeders. 

To feed our bird food mixes, simply scatter the seeds on a bird table or ground feeder, or place inside your seed feeder. This will allow birds to easily access the seeds. During rainy seasons, seeds that get excessively wet can sometimes clump together. This is no issue for birds, which will happily eat them, but it can cause blockages in feeders. To avoid this, use a covered bird feeder

Our mixed bird seed blend can be fed to birds all year round. To provide more energy to birds during Winter months, you could also opt for one of our high energy seed mixes. These contain the same selection of bird foods, but with a higher ratio of black sunflower hearts and chopped peanuts. These are great sources of fat for birds, which is helpful during colder months and they are also edible for softbill species such as robins and blackbirds. 

If you are looking for other foods to put out for birds in the Winter, suet products -- such as fat balls, suet blocks and suet pellets -- are also a popular choice. 

Which seeds attract which birds?

One benefit of adding mixed bird seed to your bird feed selection is that you will be able to attract a variety of wild birds to your garden with it. 

For example, small seeds, such as millet, attract Tree sparrows, House sparrows, dunnocks, and collared doves, and Chaffinches. Flaked maize is more likely to attract blackbirds

Equally, soft-bill species such as robins, and blackbirds cannot eat whole seeds that still have their original husk. If you are hoping to feed these species, then it’s best to use sunflower hearts or seed mixes that contain them. 

For more information on which seeds attract which birds, see our 'which birds eat' section below. 

What seeds can you feed birds?

You may be wondering what seeds you can feed birds. There are a variety of seeds you can feed to wild birds:

  • Sunflower (or sunflower hearts and chips, which have had the husk removed)
  • Rapeseed
  • Safflower seeds
  • Niger seeds
  • White proso millet
  • Shelled and cracked corn
  • Milo or sorghum
  • Golden millet, red millet, flax, and others

All Vine House Farm seed mixes are based on either oil-rich black sunflower seeds or sunflower hearts. Sunflower hearts are simply black sunflower seeds without the husk.

What are the best seed mixes to avoid growth?

If you want to avoid seed growth, you can buy our no-grow seed mixture. This prevents fallen seeds from sprouting in your garden's ground or flower beds. 

Which birds eat seed mixes?

Seeds are a popular choice of food for wild birds. Including mixed bird seed in your bird feed selection is ideal for attracting a variety of these birds into your garden/outdoor area. 

Some of the bird families and species that eat bird seed mixes include

  • Sparrows
  • Robins will eat husk-free seeds such as sunflower hearts (try our robin and friends mix to attract robins into your garden)
  • Tits (including Blue tits)
  • Song thrushes will occasionally eat husk-free seeds such as sunflower hearts
  • Finches (try our finch seed mix to attract more finches into your garden)
