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.
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.

Easy to grow. Feed indoor grown plants to your tortoise when 4-10cm tall. Outdoor grown plants can be eaten, as desired by your tortoise throughout the summer.
Can be sown indoors at any time of year or sown directly in spring. Indoors sow into moist well-drained seed compost. Place on a warm windowsill and keep moist but not wet. Germination should be rapid. Can be sown directly. Sow into an enclosed paddock area where the tortoise can roam in summer months. Successional sow for continuous supply.

Zoomed Tortoise Block Calcium
A nutritious blend of high calcium and vitamin rich edible plants for tortoises & land turtles. Highly recommended for all tortoise and land turtle species.
Grew a few assorted grass trays for my baby tortoise, and then saw this offfering. Purchased a small bag, sprinkled in on of my soil trays, and three days later the seeds were already sprouting. My grass seeds usually take at least a week. Highly recommend these seeds, very viable.
