tortoise weed seeds

As a tortoise keeper you already know how important it is to give your tortoise the best diet possible.
Mediterranean tortoises thrive on a diet of leafy green plants and whilst some are available to buy in the supermarket, you can now grow a bigger selection at home for a fraction of the price.
Pro Rep have just released their Tortoise Life Tortoise Feed Growing Kit. The kit contains everything you need to grow nutritious, edible ‘weeds’ for your tortoise.

The seeds typically include Dandelion, Smooth Hawks Beard, Nipplwort, Chicory, Smoth Sow Thistle, Great Plantain, Hoary Plantain, Ribwort Plantain, Common Mallow, Musk Mallow, Dwarf Mallow, Shepherds Purse, Hairy Bittercress, Wavy Bittercress, White/ Dutch Clover, Red Clover, Common Vetch, Sainfoin, Creeping Bell Flower, Field Bindweed and Hedge Mustard! That’s a lot of variety!

If you already have the kit for growing plants, you can also purchase the seeds separately.

No tortoise owner should be without this mix. The bag consists of over 10 different types of nutritional weeds and flowers to provide your tortoise with the fresh natural diet needed to keep them in good health. The seeds can be grown outside in your tortoise’s enclosure, or they can be paired with our propagator pack to be grown indoors.

This mix is suitable for Horsfield tortoises and all Mediterranean breeds of tortoise.
