Thread: What herbs to try next...

  1. #1

    Default What herbs to try next...

    Archie and Pip are currently enjoying sampling the mint pot I bought them. Well Pip certainly is tonight!!!

    They seem fine with the mint and I want to try them with another herb since and wondered what other buns recommend?

    She seems to be enjoying delicately plucking the leaves and I like to give them as much enrichment as possible.

    Have they had any others apart from Mint?

    Mine like Coriander and also Basil, but then I haven't found a herb that they've rejected

    I think I once gave Archie basil over a year ago. Pip had some thyme then too, but I gave her too much and it irritated her tum.
    :-( bad mummy.

    I've been so scared to try them with new food because Pip kept getting poorly, but she's doing so well I want to try again.

    They've both been fine with forage and have tried a wide range now.

    They like
    Dandelion
    Plantain
    Echinacea
    Hazel leaves
    Raspberry leaves
    Chamomile
    Hibiscus
    Rose petals

    Don't like so much
    Strawberry leaves
    Blackcurrant leaves
    Nettle leaves
    Lemon balm
    Birch leaves

    Well actually will eat all of these but lady Pip is a bit more selective. lol

    Just ordered them Blackberry leaves & Cornflowers to try....Soooo spoilt

    I was thinking parsley, but there's two votes for coriander... might have to buy them a selection...

    I have to say flatleaf parsley is also a favorite - but I prefer coriander so they get that most

    Dill is also a big hit with my buns. But I agree that coriander is a good one to try next as thatís a popular one with buns
