Seed Blend of Collard Greens, Mustard Greens and Rainbow Chard (approximately 300 seeds)
Omnivores such as bearded dragons benefit from a variety of leafy vegetables in their diet. By growing your own vegetables, you can ensure that your animals have access to the freshest possible, chemical and pesticide free food.
The seeds can be grown in pots with good quality potting mix or garden beds. Growing in several small pots can allow you to rotate the vegetables as they are eaten by your pet.
Sow a few seeds every week to provide a continual supply of food.
