Premium Sunflower Heart Kernels - 2kg, 5kg, 12.55kg, 25kg and 50kg
Sunflower seeds present a high-energy, high-protein food source which is rich in the essential oils garden birds need to keep their feathers healthy and their beaks sharp; but they are often messy, leaving husks behind when the birds are done, and can germinate if dropped into fertile earth.
To avoid the frustration this causes some garden owners, many wild bird feed suppliers offer sunflower seed heart kernels, pre-husked so that your feathered friends can more easily finish their meals.
In our experience we have found Sunflower Hearts to be the single best bird food, loved and favoured over other foods by a wide range of birds. We believe the secret of their success is that sunflower heart seeds are a convenient size for most birds, birds don't have to use valuable time and energy removing a husk and they have one of the highest calorie to size ratios and are filled with essential oils. Definitely the birds equivalent of fast food!! In addition the ease to eat them makes them a favourite of softbills such as Blackbirds, Robins and Song Thrushes.
Sunflower Hearts are also called Sunflower Kernels.
Please note due to how the sunflowers are harvested and being a natural product the sunflowers can vary in size dependent on the crop which unfortunately this year has been smaller in size. At times the product may include a percentage of chips. Due to challenges with the sunflower harvest and issues at UK Ports, we have had to use alternative sources to be able to continue to supply sunflower hearts. Unfortunately this has meant that some of the sunflower hearts are not in paper bags, we will revert back to paper only as soon as possible.
Our dehusked Sunflower Hearts come in 2kg, 3kg, 5kg, 12.55kg, 25kg (2 x 12.55kg), 50kg (4 x 12.55kg).
Please note sunflower hearts are also known as sunflower kernels.

One element of feedback regarding the product is that it would be good to find some form of alternative packaging for the 15kg size that avoids plastic, as is the case for the 12.5 sacks.
We just need Love Garden Birds to find a genuine deterrent that will keep next-doors cats out of our garden - Please?
(Posted on 27/07/2020)Sunflower Hearts - Birds Love Them Great value in these 2 x 15kg packs - with no waste. A variety of our garden birds now appear to depend on these and seem to be thriving, judging by the number of young and juvenile finches (Green/Gold/Chaffinch/Sparrows) queuing at the feeders. All delivered quickly and at the time promised, well done Neil at DPD!

- Perfect quality
Price Quality ValuePerfect quality My birds are all delighted with these sunflower seeds. Nice big kernels which don’t fall through the holes in the feeders. No cracked seeds, which is exactly what I wanted. A very good price and I will order again because the birds love them so much they are going down fast. Goldfinches, sparrows, greenfinch, Blue tits, great tits and a woodpecker are enjoying them from the feeders and a fat pigeon picks up the debris from the ground below. The perfect no mess mix! Thank you. Elizabeth 20-07/25

Price Quality ValueHad to add a bird table since feeders overwhelmed! Sunflower seeds followed a recent purchase of suet pellets. Both represent good value and the best quality I have sourced over several years. Am also attracting new bird species and families with fledglings.

The birds get through them quickly so I assume they like them.
I am very happy that the seed is packed in strong paper sacks inside a cardboard box, so no plastic involved.
