Bullfinches regularly feed from hulled sunflower seeds in a squirrel buster feeder hanging from a hanging basket bracket on the house wall. I finf the voles and mice clear up any they chuck out. I have a pole feeder in a flower bed, the worst problem is with grass seed such as oats being chucked out and growing. You just have to pull them out. I wouldn't deny myself the pleasure of watching the birds, just because it causes extra weeding.
Bullfinches will take seeds from forgetmenots. They grew ok under the feeder(and everywhere else)
