New! Hillier Wild Bird Food Range

A new range of premium wild bird food from Hillier is available now at all Hillier Garden Centres. Developed in collaboration with Britain’s leading avian nutritionists, all Hillier wild bird feeds are manufactured in the UK, nutritionally balanced and specially formulated to attract a wide range of garden birds.


Feeding the birds in our gardens is a hugely popular pastime, bringing great joy and well-being listening to their song and watching them flit between trees, shrubs and other perches. Research indicates that the population size of many of our treasured garden bird species is sadly in decline. By feeding the wild birds in our gardens, we can help them to flourish. 

The natural diet of many bird species is varied, including insects, slugs, snails, spiders as well as berries, seeds and nuts. When we supplement this by putting out extra feed, it is important we ensure what we give them is good quality and of a high nutritional standard. With this in mind, Hillier has collaborated with leading avian nutritionists, Johnston & Jeff, in order to develop a top-quality range of Hillier wild bird feeds, available exclusively from Hillier Garden Centres.


A Like-Minded Partnership for Premium Nutrition

Johnston & Jeff, our partners in developing the Hillier wild bird food range, are a 5th generation family business, exactly as Hillier is. Founded in 1880, just 16 years after Hillier was established, they have more than 140 years’ experience creating the very best feeds for birds.

As leading avian nutritionists, Johnston & Jeff place quality as the foundation stone on which they are built. Birds only truly thrive on highly nutritious, clean, properly formulated food. Johnston & Jeff never include any cheap filler materials and only use top quality materials. All feeds are manufactured in Yorkshire, where quality control is paramount.  

Through this collaboration, you can be confident that Hillier wild bird feeds contain only the finest ingredients, rigorously considered and tested to make sure it has the highest palatability and the most beneficial impact for birds.
