Hi all,

 

Can anyone tell me if any of these are edible for Queenie please? They have grown out of nowhere in the last week or so. 

 

Thanks!

Nicola

Please send closer pics of each weed you want to know about. It is hard to see with the first pic you sent.
Thank you

First one looks like a willowherb, so no feed. Second is bittercress and fine. Third looks like with Jack by the Hedge or Honesty, both fine.

Yes, but best wait until they flower to see exactly which species they are. This little book will help www.tortoises.net
