    Default Strawberry leaves?



    I've seen people posting that they have fed strawberry leaves. Sorry for the silly question but does that mean the green bit on the strawberry or the leaves from the plant itself? I have 2 plants in the garden that have lots of lovely leaves but have only produced a couple of fruits about the size of a pea I'm definitely not green fingered

    Can guinea pigs have them too?

    Thanks

    This time of year is great for feeding the bunnies things that may be growing in your garden. My gang love the strawberry leaves, strawberries, raspberry leaves, raspberries, mint, parsley, coriander, dill, basil.............and occasionally they share them with us!!!!!!

    Rabbits can eat the entire strawberry plant; leaves, stalks, flowers and eventually the fruit

    My next door neighbour has huge strawberry bed and the leaves hang over our side so I tried bun with one and he wolfed it. We can pick any strawberries we like but when I tried one he didn't like it just the leaves.

    Spenser virtually inhales strawberry leaves, they are one of his absolute favourites. Even when he was a much fussier eater than he is now, he would always enjoy a strawberry leaf.

    My next door neighbour is going to be really flummoxed as to why all his strawberry plants are bald down one side

    He is very happy for me to feed bunny anything from his garden but think I will let him know I am nicking his strawberry leaves

    Nutmeg likes them too and she's ever so picky, though she's getting a bit better.
