Does anybody know of a safe fertilizer for lawns. I’m trying to grow more grass for my large sulcata. He will be living in my backyard where he eats grass all day. Thanks.

Divide the yard in two so you can practice pasture management. While the tortoise is on one side you water and fertilize the other side. I water daily for a week, but only fertilize on the first day. Use a natural liquid fertilizer with the nitrogen number the highest of the three.

Thanks Yvonne, that’s a great idea. I appreciate it.
