We have selected our tortoises' 10 favourite foods for you to grow from seed.  Our wild flower seeds should enable you to become self sufficient in healthy tortoise food all year round.

(Did you know they're great - and safe -  for pet Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Bearded Dragons too?)

All are best grown outside in the garden, some can be grown in large pots, others do not do well in tubs or like to be transplanted. Please read the details to see if they will be suitable for you.

If you want them to grow in your outside tortoise enclosure, it's best to sow the seeds in pots or seed trays first and then transplant them. It's preferable to get then established in the spring before it's warm enough for your tortoise to go outside.

Each packet has quality seeds sourced in the U.K. and costs £2.75p including postage
