Hi - My 1st post! Prior to reading earlier posts - I deadheaded half of my coneflowers to save for a winter feeder for my finches. My garden still has plenty of coneflowers and sunflowers still blooming to satisfy the 4-5 finches frequenting my inner city garden.
Question: Has anyone built a feeder for intact coneflower seed heads? Currently I have drying on newspaper in the (occasional) sun, multitudes of seed heads. My plan is to save them, in a dry spot, until winter and then feed them to the birds.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
