Mouse Safe Plants/Herbs

Post by IdaRose on Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:12 am

What are the best mouse-safe plants and herbs that I can put into my tank? Confused

I'm making a fairy garden in their tank for when they are all mixed, and wanted to add some natural feel into the tank. I just don't want to add anything that's going to harm them if they eat it! I've heard clover, dandelion and chickweed are good, and mixed opinions on basil, so think I'll avoid that.

Thanks in advance!

Basil is safe in moderation.  Cilantro, parsley, dill, thyme, sage, fennel, watercress, calendula, rose petals, pansy flowers. And though they're on the avoid list here*, from everything I've read chamomile, mint, and petunia flowers are all safe. As with most things, moderation is key.

*because one experienced fancier said no to them on the old forum.  Mint is believed to be a mouse deterrent but I believe people are confusing fresh/dried mint leaves with the essential oil. Big difference.
