Parsley! Never had a piggy turn it down.

I got some parsley for mine once and the boy got all warty things come up all over his mouth, looked awful. didnt seem to bother him and they dried up and dropped off after a week or 2?

Thank you, I shall try those. :) I do have a few, but neither of those, and mine have all been cut down for winter too, don't know if they have made it though, they don't look very healthy apart from one.

I've been buying the "living salads" that are planted mixed leaves from Lidl etc and they love them, I also buy the window sill tubs of parsley (71p in Asda )

Coriander always goes down well with my two - and unlike parsley etc it's very low in calcium and can even be fed daily. :)

Regarding parsley - apparently flat-leafed parsley is lower in calcium than curly-leafed parsley - mine have enjoyed both types lol. x

Coriander, parsley, celery leaves, cut-and-come lettuce, sprouted bird seed mix (can also be treated as cut-and-come).
