For any one new to keeping tortoises I think you'll find this book a great help, it shows you which weeds are good to feed and also helps you id them, really worth getting a copy.  :)   https://www.facebook...oisePlantsBook/

I can’t recommend this little book enough. It’s well researched by the author and because it’s not based on high profit is well affordable. No need to go searching through hundreds of garden plants, as all you need for a healthy tortoise diet is right here. All easily sustainable in your garden or tortoise enclosure.

Yes i agree. I was a total newbie 18 months ago and this book (first edition) totally helped me to identify, learn and remember the plants and flowers for the tortoises and that you find in the UK. Also helped me to provide varied diet to the tortoises. The descriprion and pictures are very detailed and accurate, provides helpful written descriptions/exppanations etc...for example when they are available, which parts to feed, tortoises's favourites etc and it is a pretty book. I am going to get the second edition.
