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. 

No mess bird food is made using de-husked seeds, called sunflower heart chips, and granulated seeds. 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.

    I'm massively impressed with the bird food. I've bought so many different no-mess mixes over the years and every time I end up with a lot of waste that goes slimey and grows into weeds. Since I got this the variety of birds in my garden has been amazing (even got a thrush for the very first time in 10 years of living there) and they are eating every last bit with no waste. I'll definitely buy this again.
