    OMG my rabbit eat some elder leaves I hope she'll be ok
    Probably the worst thing about being a penguin is after you’re in an argument you’ll try to waddle away angrily but still look adorably cute


    I would like to be a glow worm,
    A glow worm is never glum,
    It's hard to be downhearted,
    when the sun shines out your bum

    Awesome.

    This is a toxic weed list for tortoises, however tortoise dietary requirements with weeds is very similar to rabbits.
    Hope it helps!

    Is it safe to assume all the bunny friendly plants will grow fine in containers?

    In a word yes, if they're deep enough for the root systems, parsley & dandelion like to root deeply.
    In the wild they grow better on poor soil but that is because the grass can't grow so vigorously & crowd them out.
    When cultivated, most grow well in normal, or even rich soil.
    They can be a bit temperamental about light & shade, & moisture though.
    Mediterranean herbs like full sun & normal soil, not too moist, but not bone dry!.
    Dandelions like sun but not heat - do well in morning sun, afternoon shade in the heat of summer, also like moisture & a rich soil -same for sowthistles.
