Peckish No Grow Seed Mix is a special blend that uses ingredients that will not grow in your garden. Ideal for gardeners! All the seed’s husks have been removed so the mix is 100% edible. The ingredients have also been flaked or kibbled which damages the endosperm and prevents them from growing* – this means there will be no weeds! This mix also contains our Calvita® Vitamin Pellet, a unique blend of vitamins and minerals to help garden birds stay healthy. Furthermore, our Peckish No Grow Seed Mix is now in plastic free packaging so you can feel even better about feeding the birds.

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. Peckish No Grow uses seeds that have been de-husked and kibbled to minimise the chance of germination. However due to the nature of the ingredients some whole seed may remain.
