Tortoises feed on fiber-rich wild plants and herbs - almost everything that grows wild on meadows in gardens and on roadsides and is often called "weeds". Dandelion, mugwort, plantain or thistles are a real feast for the shelled herbivores, while fruit and vegetables should be avoided.
In principle, the supply of tortoise food is unlimited, but there is always the danger that collected wild herbs and weeds are contaminated with pesticides or fertilizers. Sufficient food is provided by a simple and low-maintenance weed patch in your own garden, covered with wild plants and flowers and then left alone, save for an occasional watering during periods of dry weather.
