To the best of my knowledge, thistle seed for feeders has been sterilized so that it will not germinate. I read this somewhere once, and my experience from feeding thistle seed at my feeder all last winter was that no baby thistles appeared nearby. Not so for sunflower seed, though. Every year I get volunteers in my lawn.
