Hi - Please reach out to the Home Depot Customer Support for additional assistance.

Is Pennington Thistle Seed heat-treated to be sterilized?

I have observed scant sprouting of thistle seed in my yard, under the thistle feeder, but what little does sprout dies after being cut off by lawn mower.

A little confused with the name. This product says Thistle on the bag, not Nyjer. I know that...

TomA, The Thistle is imported nyjer seed and has been sterilized so it will not germinate.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The thistle seed arrived as expected. I can't wait to use it in my bird feeder. Birds that prefer Nyjer are seed-eating bird species. They typically have smaller, sharply-pointed bills that can easily manipulate such tiny seeds to crack shells and extract the rich seeds. Many Nyjer-loving birds are also called clinging birds because of their habit of acrobatically clinging to the sides of feeders rather than perching while feeding, and many of them can even eat upside down. These foraging habits help them feed on the natural seeds of flowers, which could be at unusual angles or waving in the wind when the birds are eating. Still, other bird species that feed on Nyjer are ground-feeding birds that will forage in leaf litter after flowers have shed their seeds. These larger seed-eating birds will also gather beneath specialized Nyjer feeders and sift through discarded shells for any seeds that have been spilled.

I just put this out though it may be a bit too early still. I know that in our area (upstate South Carolina) that the goldfinches love thistle seed, but I haven't seen any quite yet. Hopefully they'll be along soon - they normally travel in large flocks, so I'm hoping for some mass sightings in the next days or weeks. The bag of seed is very pure, with very little trash so it should be attractive.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This Nyjer bird seed is the best for my finches. I used one of those long metal mesh finch feeders and they are able to pull the see out easily. There are a lot of seeds that get dropped below the feeder, but I find that birds like quail and doves also love the Nyjer seeds so it all gets eaten leaving no mess under my feeder. I had finches that stayed all winter feeding most days. Of course, I'm in sunny and warm California.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Pennington Premium Thistle Bird Seed is a good product that includes a guarantee that it is within recognized unspecified tolerances. The thistle itself appeared to be of the highest quality, but I found small amounts of extraneous debris in the bag that I received although it was minimal. It is advertised to attract dark-eyed juncos, goldfinches, morning doves, siskins, and sparrows. It was evident that the wild birds (sparrows and doves) accustomed to feeding from my feeder were not as pleased with thistle as they had been with Pennington's Premium Wild Finch Bird Food and seemed to abandon the feeder shortly after discovering that it no longer contained seeds. I would recommend this product only if you insist on buying thistle; otherwise, I would choose Pennington's Premium Wild Bird Seed.

This seed arrived in a very sturdy box and is excellent quality bird seed.There weren't any non seed items in the mix. I have a lot of thistle lovers in my area. I put this in my feeder and immediately the birds were on it. I live in a rural area and have several feeders in my yard for various types of birds, the thistle seems to run out faster than the other feeders. I would recommend this seed for anyone who wants to attract the birds.
