Hi guys,

Just going through my seed box to start planting my weeds for this year, and came across some alfalfa seeds that i had left from when i had bearded dragons. Can i feed this to my hermanns tortoises?

Also my mum went to tesco today to buy me a bad of mixed salad, to add a bit of variety to their diet, but she came home with a bag of baby spinach leaves anyone ever use this, i did look on the tortoise trust website but couldnt see it.

Alfalfa is fine- it supposedly has a lot of iron and calcium. Spinach isn't great though, it contains a high amount of oxalates that 'bind' calcium, inhibiting it's uptake
