Niger Seed (sometimes referred to as Nyjer Seed, or Niger Thistle) is an oil-rich seed that is popular among Siskins, Goldfinches, Chaffinches and Coal Tits, a colourful range of wild birds that make great visitors into your garden. What better way to welcome them than with such a desirable treat?
We offer the cheapest Niger Seed in the UK, backed by free delivery over £25 or 12.55kg and lots of positive reviews.
It’s best to keep Niger Seed fresh as it tends to be ignored when it’s dried out.
A smaller seed, Niger requires feeders that can stop it from spilling out and can catch discarded shells. We stock a large range of specially-designed feeders perfect for your garden no matter the size.
Birds that love niger seed are Bullfinches, Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Redpolls and Collared Doves.
Our 12.55kg sizes and above now go out in a recycleable paper bag. The high oil content in this seed can cause discolouring on the side of the paper bag. To ensure the seed stays in the best condition it is best stored in an air tight container.
Please note, Niger Seed may potentially germinate and grow when fallen under feeders if conditions are suitable.
Available in 2kg, 5kg, 12.55kg, 25kg (1 x 25kg), 25.1kg (2 x 12.55kg) and 50.2kg (4 x 12.55kg) sizes.
All orders over £25 (or weighing 12.5kg or more) are delivered free of charge.
For out of areas (e.g. Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands and Islands, Isle of Man and outlying areas), please refer to our delivery information for our delivery charges.
