Description

Sunflower hearts for birds are simply sunflower seeds with the outer husk removed. They are one of our most popular straight seeds as they are suitable for feeding a large number of different wild bird species. A great value alternative to sunflower seeds, sunflower hearts are virtually mess-free. They are also a great source of nutrition for garden birds, and can be enjoyed by softbill species.

3kg & 6kg now available in paper packaging

    Excellent service. Seed reached us the day after ordering. The seeds go down almost too quickly as all our birds love them. We now have 5 resident pheasants and 2 ducks who wait all day to eat the seeds which drop out of our squirrel proof feeders. The squirrels join the ground feeders also!

    If I had to choose just one garden bird food sunflower hearts would be the one. All the birds love them and I have to regularly top up the feeder (or hang two up). Even the woodpeckers have forgiven me for not putting out pine nuts and enjoy the sunflower hearts instead.

    The birds tell me they are delicious! Seriously, they do seem to prefer these to the ones from the garden centre. The goldfinches are particularly enamoured of them! I suspect those from shops have sometimes been on the shelves for a long time.

    Arrived on time. This is the best all round feed as so many birds will eat these. They don’t fall out of the feeder easily which I am happy about as the wood pigeons would eat the lot given the chance.

    These sunflower hearts are always very popular especially with the goldfinches, so much so a neighbour asked where I bought them and said she would give them a try as she never attracted many goldfinches.

Buy sunflower hearts for birds to attract a variety of wild bird species to your garden. 

Sunflower seeds come from the flowers of sunflower plants, with the seeds developing as the flower dies off at the end of the summer. They are ideal for garden birds as they help provide them with the energy levels they need.

Although there are many varieties of cultivated sunflower, there are basically just two types that are used for seed for feeding garden birds; striped sunflower and black sunflower seeds (also sometimes called black oil sunflower). Striped has a harder outer husk than black, which is one of the reasons why black is more popular as it’s easier for birds to remove the husk.

Our husk-free sunflower hearts for birds are great for attracting a wide range of wild birds to your garden all year round. With the husk pre-removed, our sunflower hearts for birds can also be enjoyed by softbill birds. This includes birds such as the Blackbird, Song Thrush and Robin (see our 'What birds eat this' section for more information on this). 

We also offer Sunflower Heart Chips. These are easier to consume for smaller species such as Dunnocks and Robins. Chips are an ideal type of bird feed for the fledgling season. Sunflower hearts are a nutritious seed and can be found in a number of our mixes. They are a great energy and protein source, which makes sunflower hearts ideal for all seasons and stages of bird life.

With the husk removed, birds can enjoy the whole seed without wasting energy on cracking them open to feed. This is especially important during colder months, when birds need to conserve their energy, and it also means that a wider range of bird species -- including softbill birds like Blackbirds and Robins -- can eat them.
