Sunflower Hearts are a nutritious seed and can be found in a number of our mixes. Being a great energy and protein source, Sunflower Hearts are ideal for all seasons and stages of life.

With the husk removed, birds can enjoy the whole seed without wasting energy on cracking them open to feed, which is especially important during the energy-conservative winter months.

Although Sunflower Hearts are more expensive to buy than Sunflower Seeds, you are not wasting money on husks that will not be eaten. If you are concerned about larger birds and squirrels eating large quantities of sunflower hearts then ensure you choose the right bird feeder. We have Squirrel-resistant feeders and baffles in stock along with a full range of bird feeders and stations.

Please note that as we have had to increase the price of our Sunflower Hearts, due to a very poor harvest across Europe, the prices in our catalogue are now out of date.

FAQ Title 4

How do I feed Sunflower Hearts to birds?

FAQ Content 4

In order to make the most of Sunflower Hearts' versatility in terms of the species they attract, it's best to feed them in two main ways:

From a hanging seed feeder; Ideal for species of finch and tit

From a Bird Table, Ground Feeding Table or Metal Ground Feeder. Ideal for Blackbirds, Robins and other softbill species.

Alternatively, Sunflower Hearts can be scattered on a lawn or patio but ensure this is in an open area and not close to shrubs and other areas of cover from where cats might be stalking. If you are having trouble with Squirrels enjoying those tasty Sunflower Hearts, consider some Squirrel-resistant feeders and baffles.

FAQS

What are Sunflower Hearts?

Sunflower Hearts are simply Black Sunflower Seeds with the husk removed. This makes them easier for birds to eat, consumes less energy to feed and leaves no discarded husks in your garden.

Sunflower Hearts are a popular choice and enjoyed by more species than any other bird food. Unlike whole Sunflower Seeds, these are also suitable for Soft Bill birds.

What are the benefits of Sunflower Hearts over whole Sunflower Seeds

There are a number of benefits to Sunflower Hearts over Whole Sunflower Seeds. Whilst they are slightly more expensive, you are not wasting money on husks which cannot be eaten, giving you better value overall.

Sunflower Hearts boast the same nutritional benefits as Whole Sunflower Seeds, packed with healthy oils, protein and a high energy content (high in calories). This makes them great for birds in all weathers and stages of life.

With Sunflower hearts being husk-free, not only do birds use less energy to consume but there is no waste left behind in your garden. This also makes them suitable for soft bill birds such as Blackbirds and Robins, unlike Whole Sunflower Seeds.

Which birds eat Sunflower Hearts?

Sunflower Hearts attract a wide variety of species. More birds are able to enjoy Sunflower Hearts than Sunflower Seeds, with soft bill birds also able to enjoy the nutritional benefits without the problematic husk. It’s no surprise that Sunflower Hearts are one of the most popular choices of bird feed, attracting a range of wild birds all year-round.

Some of the many species that enjoy Sunflower Hearts include: Blackbird, Blackcap, Brambling, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Jay, Magpie, Nuthatch, Redpoll, Rook, Siskin, Song Thrush.

How do I feed Sunflower Hearts to birds?

In order to make the most of Sunflower Hearts' versatility in terms of the species they attract, it's best to feed them in two main ways:

From a hanging seed feeder; Ideal for species of finch and tit

From a Bird Table, Ground Feeding Table or Metal Ground Feeder. Ideal for Blackbirds, Robins and other softbill species.

Alternatively, Sunflower Hearts can be scattered on a lawn or patio but ensure this is in an open area and not close to shrubs and other areas of cover from where cats might be stalking. If you are having trouble with Squirrels enjoying those tasty Sunflower Hearts, consider some Squirrel-resistant feeders and baffles.
