they need to mature on the plant before it's cut, then they dry out.  The birds will probably be happy to eat them in their immature state

The advantage of the native plant species is as food for the native animal species, especially the larvae of native insects. 

I grow a selection of native plants and you're right Redwing, they're not the showiest but they suit me, my garden and its inhabitants.
