    Our Tortoise blend was inspired by customer David Sewart. This blend includes a wide variety of grasses palatable and nutritious for tortoises. A combination of mostly warm season grasses, this blend is designed to thrive in the southern states where tortoises enjoy basking in the sunlight and grazing on grass. All species in this blend are endophyte free and safe for tortoises.


    This blend produces a pasture that will contain approximately::



    • 10% Buffalograss

    • 10% Big Bluestem

    • 10% Western Wheatgrass

    • 10% Tall Fescue (endophyte free)

    • 10% Bermudagrass

    • 10% Orchardgrass

    • 10% Little Bluestem

    • 10% Blue Grama

    • 10% Sheep Fescue

    • 10% Creeping Red Fescue

    Note that due to legal restrictions, Bermudagrass cannot be shipped to Utah with the exception of Washington County. Blends shipped to Utah will not contain Bermudagrass.


    In an effort to help our customers visualize the finished product, note that the percentages listed above are what you can expect the stand to contain once established. For the contents of this seed blend by weight, please contact us to request a digital copy of the seed tag.
