A grass-free seed mixture to produce palatable green food for tortoises


This wild plant mixture has been formulated for Herbiseed by Lin King (known to many as 'the Tlady'), from her observations of the plants eaten by wild tortoises in Mediterranean areas. It comprises a mixture of edible annual and perennial plants without grass. It is designed to allow tortoises to graze naturally and hence avoid the use of unsuitable shop-bought greens, whilst providing a wide range of nutrients for healthy growth.
