Thread: Dried Marigold/Calendula Safe?

  1. #1

    Default Dried Marigold/Calendula Safe?



    Hi, I was thinking about buying a kilo of these dried calendula flowers to add to my buns hay as forage. Am I right to presume it's the same stuff that Burgess add to their hay?

    Absolutely!

    Buns (usually) love it, and it's a great addition.

    I also like that range

    I've seen some of their other products before on amazon but never been sure of them so good to know this one's okay! Would their other things be safe too e.g raspberry leaves etc? It says 'nothing added or taken away' but I'm always suspicious lol.
    I've been trying to get raspberry leaves for ages but never found any cheap enough!
    Only problem with most of these is that they always chop them I just want them left whole

    Ahem *returns hijacked thread to Tammybunny*


    If you're looking for dried forage etc I buy these regularly from Zooplus:

    A little expensive as they're very small bags but they go a fairly long way when mixed with all the other forage. I put in a large container and mix it well.

    If you live near a Morrisons they do a 'Dandelion Salad' which is great for 2. I use that sometimes as a top up (Asda do an almost identical one from the same brand - Rosewood - with the addition of popcorn so be careful you don't get that one by mistake)

    I'm going ahead and ordering the marigolds, I think the raspberry leaves would be fine too. Thanks for the heads up about the zoo plus forage, I may place a cheeky order for Christmas, have you ordered any of their hays?
