How to make your own bird seed
Now to save money on purchasing bird seed is to grow it. Today I am going to give you some ideas that will help with with saving money. The first thing is that your black oil sunflower bird seed. unfortunately you can not grow sunflowers from the bird seed that you get from your local feed store. The reason is that it is treated with some type of thing to prevent them to grow into full sunflowers and if they do grow they will not be big enough to harvest seeds from them. The reason they do that is that if they sold seed without treating them they would lose money because people would grow them their selfs. So make sure to purchase sunflower seeds in the garden center. Then you can plant them in the ground about 3 inches apart per seed and sow the seed 1 inch down and water then about mid August you will have a sunflower harvest.
