I've recently set up a feeding station for birds in my garden, and I've noticed that some of the bird seeds I've provided are starting to sprout. While I'm glad to see nature taking its course, I'm concerned about the potential issues this might cause for our feathered friends.Does anyone have any effective strategies for preventing bird seeds from sprouting? I'd greatly appreciate any advice or tips you can share based on your experiences.
Looking forward to your valuable insights!
'No grow' bird food seems a good solution ... several producers listed here www.birdspot.co.uk/.../buy-no-grow-bird-seed.
