By the time my torts are enjoying the spring sunshine I am hoping to have created an area in Tort Lodge Gardens in which Bubble can lay her eggs. Does anyone have an idea how to do this? I did read about leaving a gro bag of sterilised soil in a sunny area.... My thoughts were having an area of deep soil in a sunny position with a paving slab as a roof.... What do you think x x x hugs x x

Hello Stella
My female Humpty has laid by the goosebury bush in her enclosure one time it was at the front which took her all day to dig because of the roots,another time it was at the back of the goosebury bush which was much easier for her but very hard for me to dig up,back breaking, and she has also laid in her house in the area where her lights are,the days she laid in her house was when it was a bit colder outside,i have just made sure there is enough soil for digging in home and outside,i would just put plenty of top soil in the sunny areas,best of luck.
