Sometimes you can find them in the packaged mixes. My store has a "country greens" bag which has collard mustard and dandelion all in one bag. I love it lol.

I find a lot of places won't sell fresh mustard or dandelion but collards should be relatively easy to come by.

Greens are found at Walmart turnip collard and mustard --- dandelion greens at the store I have never found here - I pick mine fresh from my yard --- but the others are in supply here at all the grocery stores -

Dandelion Greens :

I go into my front and back yard and pick them , my lawn is never sprayed to kill "weeds" and I have loads of clover, dandelion and thistle growing there.

I have to be quick to get the dandelion flowers as the local wild rosellas, sulphur crested cockatoos and Galahs love them , as does the local wild bluetongue skink and the wild eastern water dragon who regularly visits for the freebies..

You can buy packets of dandelion seeds and they are literally bullet proof to get to germinate and grow in a pot .

The leaves and flowers from dandelion are all very good "greens" to offer your dragon.

If you don't have a back yard , go for a drive into the countryside , you'll soon find patches of dandelion growing wild along the side of the road that are wild and unlikely to have been sprayed, same at the local park.

Can't get turnip greens in shops here (never seen then even at the specialist green grocer) , so the best option is a garden shop who sells young plants in pots or the seeds and grow your own in a pot and planter trough or a garden bed.
