Nyjer seed that we feed to the birds comes from a flower that looks very much like a yellow daisy and is grown primarily in Ethiopia and India. Although Nyjer is sometimes called “thistle”, it is definitely not related to the invasive and prickly thistle plants found in the US. Nyjer is heat treated when it enters the US, so it can’t germinate and grow in your yard.
We carry Nyjer Seed in 5, 10, 20 and 50 pound bags. Call or stop in for pricing.
