    So I've been working in my Russian Tortoise pen recently and I wanting to grow some things for him to eat. Has anyone tried this for their Russians? I head good things about Carolina Pet Supply:

    With it, I am going to plant hibiscus and hostas. Maybe some other things depending on what I can get my hands on. Thoughts? Tried it? Love/hate it? Thanks in advance!

    No. No experience.
    Only Tortoise Supply.
    And I highly rate THEM and their seed packets.
    But that pack from Carolina supply seems like a good deal, too.

    I like tortoise supply, but I really liked the variety of this mix. Thanks for the input.

    I use stuff from them. They are slow often, and customer service when you have problems leaves something to be desired. I really like the seeds though.

    I only buy from them. I add in my own seeds to it also, like Collard Greens and dark cabbages and lettuces. I also have a lot of different "ornamental grasses" that I save seeds and use for their mix too. I live in Michigan, lay the seeds in fall each year and cover with leaves, next spring everything grows phenomenally.

    Not a very good experience when I tried to use them... Very slow, problems with lost(?) order, and some pretty lacking customer service.
    I was not too happy and ended up just canceling my order and using Amazon.
    I was bummed.

    I made the same experience. Their customer service is not very good and very slow. Great selection but I do not buy from them anymore
