Buy Freshly Picked Weeds by Post
At Tortoise Bnb we grow weeds and garden plants organically, so that all the tortoise guests have a fresh, healthy diet.
We are now able to post the same quality, fresh weeds for tortoises throughout the U.K. providing a complete diet.
* We pick, wash and post first class the same day so the weeds should arrive fresh and tasty.
* Contents will vary depending on the season and availability, but there will be at least five different species.
* All the plants grown are approved by The Tortoise Table website to be suitable for all species of tortoise.
* On arrival, pop the weeds into a lidded plastic container, they will last several days in the fridge.
* All leaves and flowers are washed in cold water so can be fed as they are, however, you may wish to rinse them again in cold water before feeding to your tortoise.

How much to order? 50 grams of weeds and flowers should provide a complete diet for a small tortoise for a week, or supplement your own weeds & flowers, for larger tortoises.
It's probably best to order 50 gms first and see how it goes.
Please be aware that tortoises can be resistant to change and may not enjoy their new healthy diet straight away!
Below is an example of 50 gms from July 2018 in one of those well known sweet tubs - to give you an idea of quantity. The weeds & flowers are sealed in a plastic bag and then in a large letter cardboard box to avoid crushing. The boxes should fit through an average latter box
This sample includes: Sow Thistle leaves, Nipplewort leaves and flowers, Red Valerian, Ribwort Plantain, Broadleaf plantain, Nasturtium leaves & flowers, Pansy Flowers, Rose petals, Sedum leaves & flowers, Hedge Garlic leaves, Lady's Mantel leaves and Mallow leaves and flowers.
Sally's seal of approval is evident - starting with a nasturtium leaf.
Using The Tortoise Table Website https://www.thetortoisetable.org.uk as our guide, you will receive mostly weeds & flowers that are 'safe to feed daily' plus some that are 'safe to feed in moderation'. This will provide a complete diet for your tortoise.
