A good way to provide variety for your tortoises. Most herbs need protection from frost so plant out in early April. Grow under cover, or in a greenhouse before that, or indoors with UV in late autumn and winter. Supplement a lawn or your established tortoise food corner. The best way is to start them off as plugs and plant out when around 15 cm high after cutting back your established lawn or food corner to around 10 cm high or less.

Individual seed varieties are an ideal way to grow your tortoises' favourite foods or plant into an established grass patch. These seeds have been carefully selected and are easy to grow in your garden, in pots or trays. The wildflowers have been carefully selected to ensure there are no plants that are toxic to humans or tortoises alike. They can all be found growing wild in the typical english countryside. It is wise to note that not everything found wild is safe to eat for tortoises or humans so this is by far the safer option.

If your neighbours aren't so impressed about you growing Dandelions you can always cut the seed heads (fluffy clocks) off before they mature.
