Re: Acanthus and Hebes

Lin
That is really helpful. I will now look properly on the detailed info. Learning all the time! My sister has just collected a veritable feast of weeds- all sorts, safe and moderate feeds. I shall practice looking up the info against all of them! Thank you! Sarah

Acanthus and Hebes

I have looked at the database info for Acanthus and it says you can feed the flowers but says nothing about the leaves. Can I feed leaves?

Hebes - I am unsure which parts to feed. The tips or the flowers or the leaves or a stem?

Hope you’re all well and your tortoises too!

Thank you!

They are gorgeous, real cuties! They look much younger than Zuma. Can imagine how thrilled they were to be out in the open air and eating fresh campanula! Sarah

Re: Not sure what this plant is

Great advice about the wire basket protection. I will definitely try that. Here’s a pic of Zuma in the campanula- literally. He’s eaten most of it this summer but it regenerates very well! Thank you Nina. Sarah

Re: Not sure what this plant is

Thank you, Lin! It’s a good thing it’s in a pot as Zuma will demolish anything edible in the border. He stayed at Mum’s recently and finished off an entire row of purple pansies in a morning. Very embarrassing, I had to refill with geraniums and take the tortoise home! Now learning to grow my planta...

Not sure what this plant is

Lin I would appreciate your help in identifying this weed which I have been growing in a pot in the hope that it may be suitable food for my tortoise! I have attached a couple of pics. Glad the photos of herb hyssop were of use. Thank you as always. Sarah [attachment=0]915D0246-9E00-429B-B058-95AFAB...

Is this a perennial geranium please?

Growing in my sister’s garden. She’s out picking weeds for Zuma! Your help would be appreciated. I have asked her to leave it growing until we know. Thank you!
