Hi there,

This looks like common mallow Malva Neglecta it has a purple flower, my torts love it and it is a good torty food. You can use google images to see more pictures of it.

I agree with Paula tho' I'm not certain that is mallow. If it is, and I'd advise checking the leaf you have against images on the internet, you have a good supply of tasty and good quality food there.

My mallows are finished for this year.

Thankyou!!! How could I have missed it, I used to eat the seeds myslef when I was a child

My tort went mad when I gave her a mallow leave, she didn't even care to look at a nice big dandelion leave!

All the island is covered with mallows and dandelion...I could feed a hundreds torts without any problems, I wish I could send you some Ozric but the leaves wilt if not refrigerated immediately.

Thanks again
