About this deal

Sunflowers hearts are a natural product so the hearts can vary in size dependent on the weather during the growing season and at times they may include a small percentage of chips. We sell the UK's highest quality, cheapest sunflower hearts, sunflower chips and sunflower seeds for wild garden birds. This also makes them suitable for soft bill birds such as Blackbirds and Robins, unlike Whole Sunflower Seeds.

Sunflower Hearts boast the same nutritional benefits as Whole Sunflower Seeds, packed with healthy oils, protein and a high energy content (high in calories). Woodpeckers are larger than the majority of songbirds, so place sunflower hearts on a bird table or ground feeder. However, sunflower hearts generate very little waste compared to the other seeds, due to the fact that the outer husk is already removed. If you’re asking ‘what birds do sunflower hearts attract’, you can find more detailed information see the ‘which birds eat sunflower hearts’ section below. Just some of the birds that might be attracted to your feeders include; Blackbird, Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Great Tit, Greenfinch, House Sparrow, Long-Tailed Tit, Nuthatch, Robin, Starling, Wood Pigeon.Best of all, as they have had the husks removed, the birds will eat the whole seed, leaving little if no mess around your feeding station. They are a favourite with a wide range of birds and are a highly nutritious food source that is rich in protein, providing invaluable year-round energy for wild birds. All of our sunflower hearts are suitable for feeding all year round, although you may wish to switch to sunflower chips (or supplement with chips) in the spring months to help fledglings who may not be able to get at the seed quite as easily as adult birds. We recommend storing your bird food in an airtight container in a cool and dry location, to ensure that it remains fresh for the period up to the best before date.

Two main reasons being a) so rats aren’t attracted, and b) because sunflower hearts are harmful to hedgehogs. Our selection of sunflower hearts for birds come in sizes from 2kg to 50kg, offering an excellent source of energy to all seed-eating birds.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. To be honest, that's pretty much all we do, by selling foods in bulk we can maximise space in our boxes when we ship our products to you, meaning we can spread the cost and keep overall costs down.

This means that they are easier for bird to consume and also have the benefit of leaving very little waste in the form of husks, on your lawn or patio. We’re your leading bird seed supplier in the UK and we make it easy for you to find the best bird seeds for your garden. This means they are the same type of sunflower seed you will find on your loaf of bread at your local bakery.In fact, Robins will feed on pre-husked seeds rather than whole seeds, as the fact they are a soft-bill species means they are unable to crack the tough outer shell (husk) of whole seeds. If you want to spot a UK Robin in your garden and are wondering whether Robins eat sunflower hearts, the answer is yes. Larger species of bird such as jackdaw and also unwanted grey squirrels will generally be attracted to the easy meal which sunflower hearts represent. Using a hanging feeder with round perches will also allow chaffinches and even ground feeding birds like robins to also get to the food (robins swallow the sunflower hearts whole). Premium Sunflower Heart Kernels M-9044 M-9044 High in energy, sunflower hearts for wild birds are a valuable and nutritious seed to have in any garden.

So, whilst you should always have at least some open feeders and ground trays (otherwise species like blackbird will miss out), having at least one caged feeder , such as this Ring Pull Guardian or a Squirrel Buster Feeder or one where the ports close when a heavier bird or squirrel stands on the perch, is always a good idea. Read our guides on deterring squirrels and how to keep Jackdaws off your bird feeders for more information on this topic. Our husk-free sunflower hearts for birds are great for attracting a wide range of wild birds to your garden all year round. They can also be fed directly from a ground seed feeder, or on a bird table, although we'd recommend putting them into a feeder to allow different birds to feed at once. With the husk removed, birds can enjoy the whole seed without wasting energy on cracking them open to feed.If you’re worried about making a mess in your garden, these sunflower hearts are de-husked so they are a perfect choice.
