Niger seeds (also known as nyger or nyjer seeds) are small black seeds, closely related to sunflower seeds.They are crammed with oils that are essential for a healthy diet.
Niger seeds come from the ramtil plant, which is native to Ethiopia. Goldfinches, siskin and redpoll absolutely love eating niger seeds!
Because these bird seeds are very small, we recommend that you feed them from a special niger seed feeder. Niger Seed Feeders can be found here.
A note to our customers about the transition from 20kg sacks to 15kg sacks. We have made a decision, which will become effective from 1st November 2021, to use DPD as our courier partner. We feel that DPD will offer our customers a better service and delivery experience, with one hour scheduled time slots and advanced tracking systems. However, for this to happen, we need to box all our goods; DPD will not deliver unboxed goods. We feel that a 20kg sack in a large box is not easily manageable for our customers, so we have made the decision to drop to 15kg, which, a box, is more easily lifted and handled. Sadly, we have to factor in the additional cost of the box, but we are hoping that this will be balanced out by the much better service that DPD will be able to give us all. We will continue to monitor costs and of course, endeavour to reduced them whenever prices start to come back down again. Thank you for your understanding. Kind regards. Lesley
Please note - if you would like to buy bigger quantities of our products ( this can be any of our seed mixes, straights or peanuts etc) and continue to buy in 20kg sacks, we will be able to offer quarter, half and full pallets of 20kg sacks. These will equate to 300kg ( 15 sacks ), 600kg ( 30 sacks) or 1 tonne (50 sacks) please call us for a quote on 01489 896785 or email us stating how much you would like to buy and also your delivery post code. For pallet deliveries we can offer very competitive prices!
Your Niger Seed should be stored somewhere cool and dry. We recommend that it should be used within 5 months of purchase - just to make sure it stays fresh and nutritious for your garden birds.
