Sunflower hearts are popular with a wide range of British birds. Birds from the tit, starling, sparrow and finch families love to feast on black sunflower seeds and hearts. Blackbirds, robins and other songbirds will also enjoy these seeds, so make sure you pick a large bag to add to basket!
You can place sunflower hearts or seed mix on an open table in your garden, or use a feeder. Feeders that have a mesh outer edge (the long, tube style feeders) are a good option if you want to limit the species eating your bird food. These feeders are ideal for small birds (starling, goldfinch, etc.) but are harder for large birds (wood pigeon, collared dove, etc.) to access. However you plan to feed sunflower hearts to your feathered friends, you can buy the food per kg at Gardeners Dream.
Sunflower seeds are the whole seed. If you plucked a seed directly from a sunflower head, that would be a sunflower seed! If you stripped away the tough outer shell, the softer inner part that you are left with is a sunflower heart.
When given the option between sunflower hearts and seeds in garden feeders, most birds will opt for the hearts. Unlike a sunflower seed, the sunflower hearts have had the outer husk removed, making them less effort to consume. Most birds won't say no to sunflower seeds when they are available, however. You can find both varieties at Gardeners Dream, along with other bird food that you can order per kg. Add to basket now.
