Bird Seed, Feed and Suet

Johnson’s Gardens carries an assortment of top quality bird feeders and bird seed. Studies have shown that people who feed wild birds have lowered levels of stress and increased feelings of relaxation and being connected to nature. Needless to say, it’s also good for the birds! While wild birds tend to get only 10%- 25% of their diet from feeders it is during times of extremely cold temperatures or especially icy conditions that your backyard birdfeeder may literally be a lifesaver.

We invite you to stop in and chat with us about your wild winged friends or ask for suggestions. We will help you select the right feeder and the right seed mix to attract birds to your yard.

Like people, birds have preferences on what, where, and how they like to eat. We have premium quality wild bird seed blends and suet for attracting a long list of birds to your backyard habitat.
