    Celery leaves - not much nutrition
    Leeks - alkaloid toxins
    scallions - couldn't find anything on this one, but I really doubt a tortoise would eat any kind of onion or its tops.

    I do feed my leopards celery leaves, but it's usually stuff we had in the refrigerator we got for us that is about to go bad. Not much nutrition but no harm in eating it. Not sure about the other two.

    My sulcatas eat all of those. No problems so far. We have a type of wild onion here too and they love that one too.

    These would be the types of things that I wouldn't put on the daily menu, but if you have some leftovers, etc., it shouldn't hurt to toss them in there.

    I always throw all my leftover veggies from cooking for my family to the tortoises.
