Am wanting to start planting seed for my tortoise food soon but would first like to ask fellow owners which mix they find to be the most successful. The Tlady's Tortoise Mix I know is recommended but any views on The Shelled Warriors Quick Growing Tortoise Mix or is there any other brand both safe and successful.
Thanks.

Hi, i find buying single packs has worked better, all these seeds have come really well for me, it's also best to plant them straight into the ground and don't over seed the area, i know a lot of people don't buy mixed seeds now, if i did the only one i would buy is the Herbi seed. x  :)

Thanks. Ordered Herbiseed and will sow straight in to the ground as suggested as soon as it warms up a little.

Hi good choice, sow them as soon as you can, then save some seeds as you do get loads and plant them later this year which will have them coming through next spring. x  :)
