This one is growing everywhere in my garden - in the soil and in the grass. This is the first one to flower though. Any ideas?

This one I bought from b&q but lost the label! oops! Has been replanted in top soil for 3-4 weeks now and new blooms. Should be safe if edible.

Just found the red one on tortoise table - is Salvia - feed in moderation only!

Hi Mrs G

I think - but not sure that the weeds are a broadleaf willowherb. I have a collins wild flower book, and it looks like the picturs in that.

I have them growing everywhere in my garden, but as yet I am not 100% sure so I have not yet tried them with my torts.

However, I have just found this link, let me know what you think:

Thanks Pennytort!!

I had a look and the leaves on mine are much narrower. So I clicked on the other kinds of willowherb and found this which I think is a match!

Looking at the tortoise table it says you can feed in moderation only.

So I'll probably avoid them just to be safe!

Thanks for your help
