Weed identification please

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Weed identification please

Post by Claire tort gal » 21 Jul 2020, 10:34

Hi everyone I’m new to tortoise keeping & am finding all of the information on here extremely helpful, I have taken over the care of my teenage nieces 3yr old Horsfield as she has lost interest. I find tallulah the tortoise very entertaining & all the information on her natural way of life is just so fascinating, I have started to grow my own weeds to feed her & cant wait to see her chomping her way through them! But currently until they grow much bigger I am foraging when I’m out walking my dogs

Hi Claire, and thank you for taking over Tallulah so that your neice can still keep watch on her progress. Thats a nice outcome for you all.
