The Q&A Archives: Grow Your Own Birdseed

Question: I would like to grow my own millet, milo and grain sorghum, but have not found a source, other than to buy a large bag of mixed seed, and I would not recognize the individual types. Do you know a source?

Answer: I found sources for several seeds for birds. Millet is available from Gurney's at 1-605-665-1930 or, write them at 110 Capital St., Yankton, SD 57079. They also have Broom Corn which birds love. Milo Maize is also known as Hybrid Grain Sorghum, I am guessing that is what you are referring to. It can be obtained from Shumway's Seed at 1-803-663-9771 or write them at R.H. Shumway Seedsman, P.O. Box 1, Graniteville, SC 29829-0001.
