    I've spent a long time scouring the internet finding plants safe for hamsters. I've often found myself wondering what's safe to put in the cage to decorate it so I've compiled a list of common plants found to be safe.

    As with all things add in small quantities as to not to upset your hamsters stomach. This list isn't 'complete' and will probably be regularly updated. I've added the sources I've used at the bottom of the post for others to read through.

    Basil, Beetroot (Whole plant), Birch leaves, Bramble leaves
    Blackberry leaves, Blackcurrant leaves, Burnet
