Do you or your neighbours feed the birds - especially goldfinches , linnets, siskins using niger/nyger/nyga seeds. They escale readily - however they seem to grow better in the second half of the year.

Hi Mark
yes we have a nyger seed feeder and the goldfinch love it, we have 6 or more that feed regularly
I am amazed this is a nyger plant as its as far away from the feeder as could be and I was under the impression all nyger seed for birds had to be treated to prevent growth.
Its grown so high , so fast and as you can see is now in bloom
What do I DO with it..???
