Looks good and not dusty. Birds haven’t tried it yet but this cold spell will empty the feeders27/11/2023
I put the seed along the double fence and the larger birds all love this as it is easy for them to feed there. I've only used Won't Grow Mix for three weeks and so far it has proven right in every way so am pleased.25/11/2023

Amazing I no longer have green thingies sprouting from my lawn25/11/2023
I have bought this item several times now and it seems to be an easy option as it is liked by finches, blackbirds, robins, woodpigeons and even hedgehogs (seemingly in preference to hedgehog food).21/11/2023
Birds love it and no seedlings to deal with. Good product.19/11/2023
I use this because some of the small birds seem to have a policy of 'take one and throw one away', which the pigeons enjoy hoovering up. However the good thing is any seeds the pigeons miss now won't grow in my gravel path.17/11/2023
spot on - accuracy and timing!17/11/2023
Excellent as always15/11/2023
Mr steve Richardson
This is a super mix loved by Sparrows, Tits, Finches, occasional Dunnock and Robin. I have purchased for many years and always found it true to its promise of no growth.14/11/2023
I haven't used the "won't grow mix yet", but it looks good. If it is as good as your other seeds, I am sure it will be Very good.11/11/2023
Mr ian Blunt
Excellent mix.Loved by a wide variety of birds.11/11/2023
Excellent quality. Lasts well. I have used it in a feeder and on a bird table. The bits that fall to the ground definitely don't grow.10/11/2023
I have been using this mix for a couple of years and find it 'does exactly what it says on the tin'. Previously I have had loads of seeds sprouting around the bird table. Birds love it - unfortunately so do the squirrels (and rats -darn!)08/11/2023

It’s a really good mix but I’m finding that it cakes inside the feeder when it rains every day as it does now. I’ll have to try one with more black sunflower seeds in it, I think08/11/2023
The bird seed and Hedgehog food I bought were exactly what I was looking for as I do have both birds and Hedgehogs visiting my garden.04/11/2023
Too soon to judge.01/11/2023
Good product, popular with the local bird population, especially the wood pigeons, starlings and the sparrows.30/10/2023
Miss Dr julie lang
Surprised to find that you have reduced the amount of seed in the bags, without highlighting this. Disappointed that your system won't let me go back to check previous orders.27/10/2023
Definitely does what it says. Excellent quality free delivery. I always use this company.26/10/2023
Worth the little extra cash to keep the messy bits to a reasonable level.26/10/2023
As described. No mess and best of all, the birds love it.26/10/2023
Mr peter Osborne
I have used this for a number of years and seems to be liked by the birds we get.24/10/2023
Perfect product delivered promptly. Many thanks.22/10/2023
Very happy with this mix (and so are my visiting birds). Not getting extra things growing in my herb beds below the feeders (apart from the generic weeds of the bed) is also great.19/10/2023
The wild birds seem to enjoy it and there is less waste.19/10/2023
Have purchased this seed for a few years and have never been disappointed. The birds love this mixture and literally eat every seed. Have tried alternatives with the result that most is thrown onto the garden. Would recommend won’t grow every time. Money well spent.17/10/2023
It dies exactly as it says ‘it doesn’t grow’ so anything that drops out of the feeder, if it’s not eaten by the ground feeding birds doesn’t make a mess. No weeding needed!!14/10/2023
A great mix which is attracting very large numbers of tits and finches, particularly goldfinches, to my garden. Sparrows and robins are mopping up the spillages when the wood pigeons give them a look-in. Reassuring to see that no spillages seem to be germinating. Delivery was spot on as well as free.13/10/2023
Excellent service as usual.13/10/2023
The birds love the food and there is no waste.09/10/2023

Loved by birds without spoiling lawn.07/10/2023
Miss Christine williams
Have been buying this seed from vine house farm for a number of years, always good quality and excellent service.06/10/2023
The birds in my garden absolutely love this food, and it doesn't grow random plants in my border where my feeder is either! I've been using this food for years and really happy with it.26/09/2023
Excellent product which actually provides remarkably good value and seriously reduces the seeds dropped below the feeder from sprouting into growth. More for the wildlife to benefit from.22/09/2023
Very pleased with the quality of the Won't Grow Mix. The sparrows have eaten every scrap.22/09/2023
My birds love this.They wait each day by the window for me to put out the feeders.It is a special mix. They love the mealworms too. I have noticed an increase in baby birds this year.18/09/2023
This feed is fantastic as it does not grow like some other feeds16/09/2023

Mr r Murchie
Offered to birds on patio, bird table and hanging feeder and always completely disappears in a couple of hours so approved by consumers.09/09/2023
Does what it says on the bag, perfect!01/09/2023
Perfect bird food. Does not grow lots of seedlings under my feeders. Enjoyed by a wide range of birds. Delivered quickly and not over packaged.01/09/2023
This product is very popular with many animals. I originally bought it as a general feed for all birds, ground feeding, feeders and bird tables. Woodpigeons, blackbirds and other small birds love it on the bird table, Some finches use the feeders although this is not a good place to use this product as it tends to spill out of the bottom. All birds (woodpigeons, blackbirds, greenfinches, sparrows, robins, collared doves, etc.) plus hedgehogs and mice love it on the ground.30/08/2023
This is always excellent and delivery is so efficient. Great30/08/2023
To avoid fallen seeds from feeders close to the house and flower beds, we have tried this mix as a compromise and it has been a real problem solver with all varieties of garden birds happy with the mix. Highly recommend.29/08/2023
Bought many times over the years always a bird favourite with nothing wasted28/08/2023
Excellent product. Not tried it myself but the birds seem to love it!26/08/2023
Very popular with house sparrows on the feeder and many species underneath, picking up the thrown out seeds. No growth problems.25/08/2023
No mess bird food is a type of bird seed mix that birds completely consume, without leaving any waste. This is also referred to as a ‘won’t grow bird seed mix’.
This is an ideal option for people who wish to reduce sprouting seeds in their garden, or generally reduce waste and mess.
Birds are naturally messy eaters. As they consume certain foods, including whole seeds, they discard seeds and the husks (outer shells) of seeds. These then drop onto the ground, or get stuck underneath feeders. If left, wasted seeds can either sprout in the ground or cause rot and fungi. If the husks of seeds are left to rot for too long below or in a feeder this can breed Salmonella. This disease is harmful to birds, which pass it between one another.
Our Won't Grow Mix is made using granulated seeds - sunflower hearts, sunflower heart chips, chopped peanuts, pinhead oats and kibbled maize. This makes it easier for birds to eat and less likely to be wasted.
This mix is also part of our wheat free bird seeds collection. Bird foods that contain wheat can cause significant sprouting when wasted seeds fall into the earth, which can be particularly tricky to manage if your bird feeder hangs over/is near decking or a slatted balcony.
Vine House Farm's no grow seed mix is also made using a selection of seeds that are most appealing to different species of bird. This encourages more birds that visit your garden to feed on the mix which, again, means less is wasted.
