Can anyone please suggest a couple of plants that would be good in the outdoor enclosure. I have planted pansies but they got eaten as did the heathers and marigolds. Thanks

Hi Aud,

In mine I have different ornamental grass, hebe, heather, yucca and hibiscus you could also have lavender all these plants are good for enclosures as they don't really get eaten, plants like pansy's etc wouldn't last two minutes in mine. :)

I agree, any soft plants are a waste of time, just like feeding salad :) I find Hebes are good for hiding and digging under and once established they stand up well to being shoved around. Never had a tort eat Heather lol
