Where to Feed

  • Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue and develop a routine
  • The birds will become reliant upon your help.

Hygiene

  • Always ensure birds have plenty of fresh clean water for drinking and bathing
  • Clean feeding and drinking areas regularly with a mild disinfectant
  • Keep food fresh and dry, removing any wet food to prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases

Storage

  • Not suitable for human consumption
  • Contains nuts
  • Keep packaging away from children to avoid suffocation
  • Store in a cool dry place
  • Best used within 3 months of opening

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why are the birds not visiting my feeders?

A. It is not uncommon for birds to take some time to visit new feeders or food that is offered. It can be down to the species in your area and other food resources that are available. Make sure you are providing some cover for the birds and make available some fresh drinking water.

Q. Why are the birds discarding some seeds?

A. Wild birds are selective over what they eat and when. It is not that they do not like it but they might have another source or they don’t need it right now. Never remove or stop feeding these seeds as shortages can happen at any time.

Q. Would the discarded seed grow below my feeder?

A. Gardman No Mess Sunflower Hearts is not a “no grow” mix. Given the right conditions the seed could germinate.
